Angela Baker, a former Georgetown AAP student currently pursuing her nursing degree, was one of six students recently awarded the Louise Jarmon Hopkinson Scholarship from the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing in Lewes. Baker is a member of the first cohort of students enrolled in the new UD/Beebe nursing education partnership, which launched in fall 2017. The Hopkinson is a merit scholarship for the spring semester that is granted to first- and senior-year nursing students on the basis of academic performance. 

The UD/Beebe Dual Enrollment Program was developed as a partnership between UD and Beebe Healthcare's Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing in Lewes. Like other AAP students, dual-enrollment students in Georgetown take UD courses taught exclusively by University faculty and earn an associate's degree. However, beginning in their second year, dual-enrollment students take courses at Rollins in addition to their UD classes in Georgetown. Instead of transitioning to the Newark campus, nursing students move on to complete a third year at the Rollins School of Nursing, gaining hands-on clinical experience at Beebe Healthcare in Lewes and earning a diploma of professional nursing in addition to their UD Associate in Arts degree. After successfully completing the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCLEX) examination, they may then enter the workforce as registered nurses or go on to complete their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree through UD's online baccalaureate program for the registered nurse, offered by the University's College of Health Sciences. Students wishing to continue their education further have the opportunity to earn a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree from UD, which is also available in an online format.
