CMU to offer nursing program in St. Charles

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — Central Methodist University is working with St. Charles Community College to offer a new bachelor's degree program in nursing.

The Columbia Daily Tribune (http://bit.ly/10FLYlZ) reports that the program is designed for people who already have their registered nurse certification. The program allows them to earn a four-year degree from Fayette-based CMU, with classes held on the St. Charles Community College campus.

Central Methodist University also will partner with BJC HealthCare to offer the nursing program.

BJC HealthCare operates Columbia's Boone Hospital Center. The facility serves residents primarily in the St. Louis area, southern Illinois and Mid-Missouri.
