Program provides a blend of online and on-campus courses to meet nurses' busy schedules
According to the AACN,
the primary pathway to professional nursing is a bachelor of science in
nursing degree, compared to the technical-level practice of an RN. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
(RWJF) released a newsletter in 2013 titled "The Case for Academic
Progression," which outlined how patients, employers, and the profession
benefits when nurses advance their education. The report calls for
academic progression with two specific goals for 2020: an 80-percent
baccalaureate-prepared nursing workforce and a doubling of doctorates
held by nurses.
Each nursing course at Argosy University, Phoenix is delivered in a blended format, a combination of online and on-campus experiences. Class is held on campus one day per week to accommodate the busy lives and schedules of working nurses.
"There is a need for bachelor's degree nursing programs to help both nurses and hospitals in the state of Arizona," said Diann DeWitt, PhD, RN, CNE, chair of the nursing program at Argosy University, Phoenix. "By focusing on courses geared towards building the necessary skills professional nurses require, graduates will be better prepared to advance their careers in nursing and meet the growing demand for qualified healthcare professionals."
The university is partnering with local hospitals and healthcare agencies to establish cohort classes at their locations. By holding classes at their sites, employers are better able to advance the professional development of their employees while ensuring the skills they have the opportunity to learn are tailored to the needs of their organization.

Dr. Tony Rousmaniere, who in 2008 earned a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | San Francisco Bay Area, recently published Deliberate Practice for Psychotherapists: A Guide to Improving Clinical Effectiveness. The book explores how psychotherapists can use deliberate practice to improve their clinical effectiveness. A summary of the work says that “by sourcing through decades of research on how experts in diverse fields achieve skill mastery, the author proposes it is possible for any therapist to dramatically improve their effectiveness. However, achieving expertise isn’t easy. To improve, therapists must focus on clinical challenges and reconsider century-old methods of clinical training from the ground up.”
Dr. Rousmaniere’s book presents a step-by-step program to improve clinical effectiveness across the therapists’ entire career.
Dr. Rousmaniere is a member of the clinical faculty at the University of Washington, Seattle where he also maintains a private practice. He provides clinical supervision for advanced post-graduate psychotherapists internationally (United States, Australia, Asia, England, and Europe) and serves on committees for the Society for Advancement of Psychotherapy (American Psychological Association Division 29) and the International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association.
