Minnesota State College Southeast nursing program approved state board 

Students will be able to earn degree and test to become registered nurses

RiverTown Newsroom, August 12, 2020

RED WING -- Things are going well at Minnesota State College Southeast -- literally.

The college's Associate of Science in Nursing degree has been approved by the Minnesota Board of Nursing, qualifying students to take an exam and become registered nurses.

MSC Southeast Interim President Larry Lundblad called it a great moment in the college's history.

"We are excited to be providing students with the associate option that gets them into the field after five semesters. Our nursing faculty and administrators are to be commended on the outstanding job in putting together a program that meets the needs of today's employers and students," he said in a news release.

The new program builds on the success of the college's ACEN-accredited Practical Nursing diploma.

"The Associate of Science in Nursing allows us to not only meet a need for registered nurses in southeastern Minnesota, but provides another career pathway for students with family-sustaining wages," said MSC Southeast Vice President of Academic Affairs Chad Dull. "This double benefit is key to our mission of supporting our students and the communities we live in."
