When Nurse executive turned entrepreneur, Kerry-Ann Baker, considered the growing changes in Healthcare education, she conceptualized the College of Health and Allied Development (CHAD), to provide an advanced nursing degree program, it also happens to be the only one of its kind to the Delray Beach locale.
CHAD brings workforce development to Delray Beach and the healthcare industry in response to the growing push from the American Medical Association, Boards of Nursing, and Hospitals for nurses to obtain their Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree for entry-level RN positions. The School is therefore a celebrated addition to the Delray Beach area with access to healthcare facilities and is referenced in publications by the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce as a part of the Delray Beach Economic Development.
College of Health and Allied Development offers the RN-BSN program both On-Campus and from their Online College. The School provides flexible options for the working nurse characterized by convenient hours, small class sizes to facilitate adequate scholar – teacher interaction, and their online program that utilizes all current technologies to facilitate various learning and teaching methods.
Currently the school has tuition scholarships available to qualifying registered nurses. Additional incentives also apply for nurses living and working in Palm Beach County. “Now is the perfect time for the nurses in our community to access the opportunities that education provides and through this advanced education, explore more options for their careers” states the School’s Campus Director, Keisha Crichton, as she encourages prospective students to get started on making the right choices towards their future career security.
CHAD is conveniently located along the Delray Beach innovation corridor on Congress Avenue, just off the I-95 Atlantic Ave exit; opposite to the Delray Beach Tri-rail station and Palm Beach County Health Department; on the #2 bus route; and with direct access to the turnpike.
