Innovative Curriculums Prepare Professional Nurses

Keiser University has become well recognized among online colleges and universities for its career-centric programs. Its main, traditional campus, though, is located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Since the school's founding in 1977, Keiser has expanded to include a dozen satellite campuses in other areas of Florida. Traditional degree programs are tailor-made for students hungry for hands-on, practical training.

One Course at a Time Model

Keiser specializes in accelerated degrees packaged in a non-traditional curriculum delivery system. Keiser's learning paradigm is built on a system designed as a one-course-at-a-time model. Before students may move to the next course, they must first pass the exam that caps each course-a kind of competency-based metric. Keiser believes that this type of concentration makes it possible to spend the maximum amount of time in experiential learning, and also makes it possible to shorten courses while delivering essentially the same quality of information as another program built on a traditional course scheme. On campus and in online programs, class sizes are intentionally kept small. This encourages collaboration and effective interaction often lost in larger classes.

Working professionals and students seeking hard and fast career programs find programs such as Keiser's extremely convenient, user-friendly, and relevant. KU schedules courses and degrees that not only run on traditional day-campus schedules, but there are plenty of versions that run on evening and weekend campus tracks, as well, to accommodate working, non-traditional students. Degrees are conferred in Associates, Bachelors, and Masters levels and there is a vital continuing and workforce education department that is tuned to the demands of professionals with higher, micro-specialized career needs.

College History

The Keiser family first developed the initial Keiser College in the late 1970s strictly with technology and healthcare degrees and courses. Their main intent has not changed-market-driven education for post-college age adults-even though the breadth and size of their academic aspirations has far exceeded initial models.

Keiser's faculty is chosen for both educational prowess as well as sharp, professional careers. Faculty members that divide time between teaching and working within their fields are a cultivated for their value as teachers for professional students. Adult learners traditionally demand more relevant and experiential training than do their college age counterparts satisfied with theory and abstract ideas.

Keiser's distance learning "campus" offers healthcare and business degrees, including the popular RN-BSN nursing program. The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools accredits Keiser as a degree-granting institution.
