Great Falls College nursing program restored
Great Falls College Montana State University is restoring its practical nursing program and expanding its enrollment after a year's hiatus.
Kim Martin, director of the practical nurse program, said Tuesday that 30 students will be accepted into the program this fall.
A year ago, the college put its 20-student practical nursing program on hold and delayed plans to begin a registered nursing program while the college searched for a new director and faculty.
The college on Tuesday also announced a partnership with Montana State University-Northern in Havre to allow students to earn a two-year associate of science degree in nursing entirely in Great Falls. The college will have 20 slots in that program that trains registered nurses.
