The SIUE School of Nursing has received the St. Louis Regional Chamber’s 2014 Arcus Award for Achievement in Educational Attainment. The School was one of 12 finalists for the award.

The School competed in a category for organizations that provide leadership through the creation of a program or initiative that promotes college degree attainment, improved educational outcomes or on-the-job training. The School’s newly revised, completely online Accelerated RN-BS program was designed to create an efficient and effective quality program tailored for student success and retention, and thereby increase the number of baccalaureate prepared nurses. In October 2014, a collaborative partnership was created with SSM Health to deliver advanced educational opportunities for the system’s nurses.

The St. Louis Regional Chamber created the Arcus Awards to celebrate the achievement of organizations that are making St. Louis a more attractive place to live, work and invest.
