With a signing event Tuesday afternoon, Nevada State College (NSC) and Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Pharmacy (Roseman COP) in Henderson officially launched their new Fast-Track BS/PharmD program.
Officials from both institutions gathered to celebrate the program and its impending impact on the local community, allowing for qualified students to earn both Bachelor of Science in Biology (BS) and Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degrees in as few as six years, two years shorter than the traditional curriculum.
“I would like to thank everyone who contributed,” said Vickie Shields, PhD, acting president at NSC. “This is the type of partnership that benefits our entire community, rewarding students with two degrees from top-quality higher education institutions, that happen to both be located in Henderson. Everybody wins!”
“We are delighted and honored to join Nevada State College to further strengthen our shared mission to educate future generations of healthcare professionals. Further, NSC’s students bring rich diversity to the pharmacy profession in our region,” said Renee Coffman, PhD, president and co-founder of Roseman University.
