Orlando (Nov. 13, 2018)—Rasmussen College, a regionally accredited private college, today announced the opening of a new state-of-the-art campus in Orlando, Florida.1 Enrollment is immediately available with classes beginning in January 2019. The new campus, which is the College’s sixth in Florida and 23rd nationwide, is located at 385 Douglas Avenue, Suite 1000, in Altamonte Springs. The space includes classrooms, a computer lab, student learning and collaboration spaces, as well as simulation equipment in the campus’ four labs for Health Sciences and future Nursing students. Construction on the multimillion-dollar facility began in March 2018. The campus is open to students and community members who are interested in earning a flexible and affordable degree at Rasmussen College. Local business and community organizations may also use the College for meeting space at no charge when available.
The College now features six campuses across the state in Fort Myers, Tampa/Brandon, Land O’ Lakes/East Pasco, New Port Richey/West Pasco, Ocala and Orlando. In the past five years, nearly 7,000 students have graduated from Rasmussen College across the country.
“We are excited to expand our educational footprint into central Florida and its surrounding communities,” said Rasmussen College president Dr. Trenda Boyum-Breen. “Rasmussen College is committed to providing affordable degrees and innovative learning options to meet the evolving needs of our area students and communities. Over the years we’ve seen the demand for healthcare and nursing professionals grow, especially in Florida. Our new campus gives the College an opportunity to better serve these students and prepare them for working in today’s complex healthcare environments.”
