We spoke with Sharon Richardson, Director at the Orlando campus on why student’s should look to gaining an education from Rasmussen, especially in the these times of Covid-19 social distancing.

“My heart goes out to the Senior class of 2020; as our previous way of life has shuttered and we work to configure a new normal”, says Richardson. She explains that Rasmussen College is an option for students who want to continue their education online and/or go into the healthcare field.

Rasmussen College is a regionally accredited private college that is dedicated to changing lives and the communities it serves through high-demand and flexible educational programs. Since 1900, the College has been committed to academic innovation and providing the highest standard of education. Rasmussen College offers certificate and diploma programs through associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs online and across its 23 Midwest and Florida campuses.

“There were already predicted shortages of nurses in the central Florida area, Covid-19 has increased that need”, Richardson told us. In fact we did our own research and found that the nationwide, experts predict nursing shortages in the upcoming years. Luckly Rasmussen has programs to train students and get them into the field as quickly as possible.

Students can a Professional Nursing degree at Rasmussen in as little as 18 months; Bachelors in Nursing in as few as 33 months, or the Medical Assistant program in as little as 12 months.
