Editor's Note

Four more schools and hospitals have recently started nursing programs and partnerships or plan to do so to address the nationwide nursing shortage, the September 15 Becker’s Hospital Review reports.

  • West Virginia University, Morgantown, is expanding its nursing program to Beckley, West Virginia, and opened a new campus in Bridgeport, West Virginia.
  • Cabarrus College of Health Sciences, Concord, North Carolina, started two new programs—a traditional 4-year BSN degree and an accelerated BSN degree for those who have a bachelor’s degree in another field.
  • The University of Arkansas, Fort Smith, is using part of an $18.7 million donation to expand its nursing programs to include both an associate degree in nursing and an RN to BSN degree.
  • Kaweah Health, Visalia, California, is creating a new nursing program through Unitek Learning that is a blended program of classroom and virtual.

Becker’s listed 11 schools adding nursing programs in July, and will continue to add to the list.
