Chattahoochee Technical College students who earn their Associate of Science in Nursing can now make a seamless transition into a four-year degree in nursing through a new articulation agreement with Reinhardt University.
Chattahoochee Tech and Reinhardt University officials signed the Educational Pathway articulation agreement Monday, Sept. 30, at the Chattahoochee Tech Appalachian Campus in Jasper. The Educational Pathway allows Chattahoochee Tech nursing students to continue their studies at Reinhardt’s Cauble School of Nursing & Health Sciences in order to earn their Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The articulation agreement highlights classes that will transfer from Chattahoochee Tech to Reinhardt’s nursing program and is applicable for the 2019-2021 academic years.
“It is very important for nursing students to pursue that upper level, baccalaureate degree,” said Chattahoochee Technical College Dean of Nursing Quetina Pittman Howell. “This articulation agreement signifies that steps are being put in place for our nursing students to continue their studies.”
Signing the articulation agreement on behalf of Reinhardt University was Associate Provost Dr. Jacob Harney. “We will work with these students with our full commitment and our full vigor to ensure we generate more nurses in this very important area of the state,” said Harney. “We want to thank you very much and look forward to further collaboration.”
Chattahoochee Technical College President Dr. Ron Newcomb commented on the longstanding partnership that Reinhardt University and Chattahoochee Tech have enjoyed over the years, and said it was fitting to celebrate the event.
“We consider Reinhardt to be a very valuable and very active partner,” said Dr. Ron Newcomb, president of Chattahoochee Technical College. “We are honored that we now have a memorialized pathway for our students. We’ve long had a great relationship with Reinhardt, and we’re so delighted to have this signing today.”
