Two Indiana Nursing Schools Collaborating to Help Students Easily Advance Their Education

Last week, wane.com reported how a new agreement between Ivy Tech and University of Saint Francis will make it easier for nurses to continue their education and obtain MSNs without having to leave the local area. The agreement, signed last week by the two universities, laid out a plan that will have now reserve 25 percent of the seats in the master's nursing program at the University of Saint Francis for Ivy Tech graduates. his is an innovative approach to encourage those who have obtained an associate’s degree in nursing to pursue a higher degree. This agreement directly aligns with recommendations made by IOM's Initiative on the Future of Nursing committee's report: "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health."
