(WAUSAU, Wis.) – Northcentral Technical College (NTC) and Upper Iowa University (UIU) are proud to announce a Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP) for students completing the Nursing Associate Degree at NTC. Through this unique agreement, students will enroll simultaneously at both NTC and UIU while completing the Nursing Associate Degree. Upon graduation, students will then complete an additional three to four terms of UIU coursework online, earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) in as little as eight months.
 
“Upper Iowa University is excited to enter into this partnership with Northcentral Technical College,” said Virginia Wangerin, Director/Department Chair of Nursing at UIU. “This is a natural extension of our successful partnership with NTC, and provides a valuable opportunity to advance the education of nurses in the community. This partnership allows NTC students to acquire their Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing through a seamless and cost effective pathway.  A more highly educated nursing workforce benefits the entire community and I commend NTC for their visionary approach to nursing education.”
 
This educational pathway is designed to assist in meeting the Institute of Medicine 2010 Future of Nursing goal to increase the percentage of BSN registered nurses in the United States to 80 percent by 2020. To view the transfer guide, visit www.ntc.edu/transfer.
 
The first cohort will begin during the fall 2016 term. Anyone interested in pursuing the CEP option at NTC can contact Justin Willis, NTC Advisor, at 715.803.1372 or Patricia Klein, UIU Nursing Academic Advisor, at 480.461.6791.
