Wichita State offers new online nursing degree

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Wichita State University’s School of Nursing is expanding its online offerings with a bachelor’s degree in nursing.

The school said Thursday the program offers advanced placement to registered nurses seeking a bachelor of science in nursing degree.

Wichita State President John Bardo says in a news release that the School of Nursing is offering one of the first completely online degree programs at the university. The expansion aims to meet the needs for increasing numbers of baccalaureate-prepared nurses.

Wichita State says that students who choose the new offering will be able to finish more quickly, pay less and gain career-building leadership skills. The program builds on skills established in a registered nurse’s previous educational program.
