Delta Community College and Northwestern State are teaming up to create an easier route to a Bachelor’s Degree for Delta nursing students. Both colleges signed a Memorandum of Understanding Wednesday morning agreeing to work together online.
Students who graduate from the nursing program at Delta Community College can apply their Associate degree credits to NSU’s online Bachelor’s degree in Nursing. “They start a plan, and they can begin to set up the plan for some of their coursework while they’re finishing up the nursing program here,” says Dr. Dana Clawson, NSU’s Dean. “A lot of people already do that, so it’s that seamless.”
