SIUE Partners with Lewis & Clark for Nursing Degree Track

November 6, 2015

The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) School of Nursing (SON) and Lewis and Clark Community College (L&C) have announced a new partnership. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree track enables community college students to rapidly achieve their baccalaureate degree from the SON after attending Lewis and Clark to complete an associate degree and the majority of the general education requirements.

“This is going to benefit students who may not have originally seen themselves going into a four-year program,” said Dr. Roberta Harrison, assistant dean of the SON. “They can complete the coursework for an associate degree at the community college level. When they transition into our online program, they can already see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

A student who successfully completes the first two semesters of outlined BS in Nursing Partnership curriculum at L&C can enroll in the first two SON courses for their third and fourth semesters. Once a student has successfully completed the ADN program at L&C and licensure as a registered nurse is obtained, the student may progress through the remaining four RN to BS nursing courses through the SON’s online program.
