CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The University of Charleston will begin offering an associate degree in nursing at its Beckley campus this fall.
The program was recently approved by the West Virginia Board of Examiners for Registered Professional Nurses.
The university says the program is geared toward working adults, offered on alternate weekends, and can be completed in 18th months. It will offer a combination of face-to-face instruction, laboratory work and clinical work in area hospitals.
A maximum of 15 students will be accepted this fall. A second cohort staring in January also will be limited to 15 students.
