Movement underway to offer bachelor’s degree in nursing at community colleges

Posted by wlpo on October 14, 2016

Nursing is a popular major at Illinois Valley Community College and soon the school may be able to offer a bachelor’s degree in nursing.

IVCC President Jerry Corcoran says momentum is growing for community colleges to offer bachelor’s degrees in nursing. The thought is that due to the complexity of the health care system, most medical professional organizations strongly prefer bachelor’s degrees over associates.

Corcoran says the issue will likely be talked about next month at the Illinois Community College Trustees Association meeting.
