ACM EVENING NURSING PROGRAM EXPANDED IN RESPONSE TO SHORTAGE
CUMBERLAND, Md. (July 20, 2021) – Allegany College of Maryland is doubling the number of nursing students in its evening cohort. Beginning in January 2022, the college will accept 40 students into its two-year academic training program. Applications are due by September 30.
Application information, including instructions for taking the nursing entrance test, the HESI A2 entrance exam, are available online at allegany.edu/nursing/nursing-application. Classes are held Monday through Thursday from 4 to 10 p.m. with the possibility for daytime clinical hours.
“Because of its popularity with students and the region’s demand for well-trained and skilled nurses, it’s a highly selective program to enter. Students with higher HESI A2 scores tend to have higher admission ranking scores, so we recommend that program applicants schedule time to study and take practice tests. It makes a difference,” said Sandy Clark, assistant program director of ACM’s Nursing program.
The college’s Associate Degree Nursing program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. and approved by the Maryland Board of Nursing and the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing.
