The first graduates of the RN-BSN program graduated December 11. The degree is a bachelor of science in nursing with a focus on leadership.
The group, known as a cohort, began February 2009 at the North Fresno Center. There are currently two cohorts at North Fresno and one in Visalia, with one cohort at each location scheduled to begin in January.
Some people take distance learning very seriously.
This December 11 eight members of the online master’s in kinesiology attended ommencement from out of state—way out of state: three from Guam, two from Seattle and one each from Boston, Denver and Chicago.
The kinesiology master's degree, one of four online M.A. programs at FPU, prepares professionals in physical education, athletic training and sports administration. Depending on when students start, the program can be completed in 14 or 17 months. Jim Ave, Ph.D., is the program director.
Celebration was the word as representatives from Fresno Pacific University, Tulare City School District and the College of the Sequoias gathered at FPU to announce two grant programs and the national accreditation of the university’s RN to BSN degree completion program.
Lessons from a guy who started a business in an 1,100-square-foot apartment with three interns and a cordless telephone, anyone?
What if that guy is Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS Shoes, which gives a poor child a pair of shoes for each pair sold? In just over four years the company has given away more than one million shoes, his footwear has become available at stores such as Nordstrom’s and he has struck partnerships with firms like Ralph Lauren.
A new grant unites a school district, an education organization and Fresno Pacific University to help teachers teach and students learn about science and language arts.
The California Post-Secondary Education Commission Grant has been approved for $282,839 for one year. FPU, the Tulare City School District and the K-12 Alliance, a non-profit group that does professional development for teachers, will work together on a project called BLASTT (Bringing Language Arts and Sciences Together in Tulare).
