SIUE Partners with SSM Health Care to Offer Accelerated, Online RN to BS Program to Nurses Working in the Industry

September 24, 2014

Beginning January 2015, the SIUE School of Nursing will offer an online, accelerated RN to BS in nursing degree to SSM Health Care nurses. This online program is the first of its kind for the health system and will be available to SSM nurses from Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Oklahoma. Dr. Laura Bernaix, interim dean of the SIUE School of Nursing, said the program was designed in a “contemporary, easily accessible and affordable format” for working RNs. The SIUE School of Nursing was selected for this partnership by SSM chief nurse executives over 38 other higher education institutions in the U.S.
