Iowa State's director of nursing education believes the school has nearly everything it needs to make its new bachelor of science in nursing degree a success. Professor Virginia Wangerin says ISU already has a strong foundation in nutrition, wellness, and health. She adds the major will give students expertise in leadership, management, communication and dealing with patients who have specific needs, including the elderly and those with chronic diseases. Wangerin says the ISU nursing program will work in partnership with DMACC and build on their associate's program. The school expects to start accepting applications by the end of the year and to start enrolling students in the BSN major next fall.
