Marshall’s School of Nursing is set to begin a unusual partnership this fall with Glenville State University.
In the summer of 2021, the Marshall and Glenville announced a partnership to enhance nursing education in the state. The collaboration will establish a nursing co-op that will provide access to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) at Glenville State University through Marshall’s nursing program.
The partnership enables prospective students to enroll at Glenville and complete their general education courses during their first year. Once admitted to the B.S.N. program, students will receive instruction from Marshall nursing faculty members via interactive video while remaining on the Glenville campus.
“We are excited to be part of this cooperative program with Glenville State University. The School of Nursing at Marshall has a long-standing reputation for graduating quality nurses, and we are thrilled to provide the same level of education to our new off-site campus in Glenville,” said Marshall School of Nursing Director Dr. Annette Ferguson.
The brand-new program expands nursing education to a new region of the state during a time when more and more nurses are needed throughout the region.
“The collaborative program will let students on the Glenville State University campus complete nursing labs and clinical rotations in the Glenville area. This will allow students to stay close to home and still be able to complete their nursing degree,” Ferguson said.
The class for Fall 2023 has already been accepted, but the School of Nursing is now accepting applications for pre-nursing students for Fall 2024. For more information visit www.marshall.edu/nursing.
