School of Nursing Continues to Expand Community Partnerships

September 17, 2015

The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Nursing continues to create community partnerships in response to the demand for baccalaureate-prepared nurses. SIUE School of Nursing (SON) Assistant Dean Roberta Harrison has announced two new partnerships with Greenville College and Clay County Hospital.

The agreement with Greenville College (GC) is a nursing program partnership to facilitate select students to complete an accelerated, three-year bachelor’s in biology from GC followed by an accelerated bachelor’s in nursing from SIUE. The SON will work closely with GC to identify interested candidates meeting the accelerated bachelor’s in nursing admission requirements.

GC students, who want to pursue nursing, can earn a bachelor’s in biology through their accelerated program in just three years, followed by 15 months to achieve an accelerated BS in nursing at SIUE. They can complete both degrees in just 4-1/2 years. 

Students taking advantage of this partnership will begin the accelerated bachelor’s program in fall 2017.

The SIUE SON also signed a corporate partnership agreement with Clay County Hospital in Flora for SIUE’s accelerated, online RN to BS program. This collaboration reaches out to RN’s in eastern Illinois who are primarily served by the Eastern Illinois Community Colleges - Olney, Wabash, Frontier and Lincoln Trail.
