|MINNEAPOLIS — October 5, 2012 – Globe University and The Minnesota School of Business (MSB) announced today that effective October 8, the beginning of fall quarter, the school will reduce its overall tuition for students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program by a total of $11,900 over the course of the program. The accredited program offers nursing students the opportunity to receive a bachelor’s degree in less time than traditional programs while still providing the same quality, hands-on experiences they would receive at other education institutions.
The school hopes to attract students to its growing nursing program. “Our program offers quality education to the future nurses of our health care systems,” saidJeff Myhre, vice president atGlobeUniversity and The Minnesota School of Business. “We want to help reduce the barriers that our students may be facing by reducing the cost-per-credit load on our nursing tuition.”
The call for educating more nurses in theU.S. has come in part from a comprehensive report written by the Institute of Medicine (IOM). One of the report’s principal recommendations is to “increase the proportion of nurses with a baccalaureate degree to 80 percent by 2020.”
The bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree program at MSB is currently offered at its Richfield campus. The twelve-quarter (three-year) nursing degree program provides rigorous training for the NCLEX-RN exam and helps students prepare to practice in a diverse global community.
In the most recent reporting year of 2011 the college’s nursing program had a 95 percent retention rate and 97 percent job placement rate.
