Winona Post: New RN program arrives at MSC-SE

By Alexandra Retter, August 19, 2020

A new associate of science in nursing (ASN) program at Minnesota State College Southeast (MSC Southeast) was recently approved by the Minnesota Board of Nursing, and students may begin taking prerequisite courses for the program this fall. The aim of the program is to get students ready for taking the NCLEX-RN exam, which will allow them to become registered nurses (RNs). "We're just excited to offer the program so people can graduate with a livable, workable income to support their families and our communities," MSC Southeast Associate Dean of Nursing Janine Mason said. 

The program complements the college's other health programs, such as radiography and medical lab technician programs, MSC Southeast Interim President Larry Lundblad stated, and it is valuable for students who wish to earn an associate's or bachelor's degree. It is also beneficial for potential employers, he added. "It certainly will provide graduates for various health systems ... they're all looking for RNs, and this will be another source of employees," Lundblad said. Read the full story
