Touro University California (TUC), an independent, not-for-profit Jewish-sponsored graduate school located on Mare Island in Vallejo, recently announced the opening of its School of Nursing in August 2014.

The new school is designed for working registered nurses with an Associate (ADN) or Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing (BSN) that are leading to a Master’s Degree in Nursing and Clinical Nurse Leader Certification. The program will also prepare ADN graduates for public health nursing certification in California.

“The university has a strong history of contributing to the regional healthcare workforce through programs in Physician Assistant Studies, Public Health, Osteopathic Medicine, and Pharmacy,” said Dr. Marilyn Hopkins, COO and Provost of TUC.

This post-licensure master’s degree program will build on the knowledge and skills gained in entry level nursing programs. ADN graduates can complete the curriculum with 46 units of coursework taken over an 18-month period. BSN graduates will enter the curriculum after the first two academic sessions and take a total of 33 units of coursework over a 13-month period.

About half the curriculum will be offered online with remaining courses offered one evening per week and one Sunday per month.

“Advanced nursing degrees are imperative to meet the demand for nursing faculty, clinical nurse leaders, nurse practitioners, and researchers,” said Dr. Ann Stoltz, newly appointed Director for the School of Nursing and resident of Vacaville, Ca.

Nurses with a master’s degree will play an important role in implementing the enacted Affordable Care Act. The new health care delivery system will result in an additional 32 million Americans needing access to primary care services.

Highly educated and well-trained nurses are an integral part of caring for this expanding population. The new collaborative health care model will rely on the availability of nurse leaders, which requires advanced education that builds upon the foundation of nursing education.
