Accelerated nursing program classes have begun on NSU campus

​ABERDEEN, S.D. – The first classes for the Aberdeen-based accelerated nursing program through South Dakota State University began Jan. 2 on the Northern State University campus.


Twenty-three students are enrolled in the cooperative program, said Coordinator Dr. Linda Burdette. A "white coat" ceremony in honor of student admission into the program will be 3 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10, in Centennial Room A of the NSU Student Center. 


This ceremony welcomes nursing students to the beginning of their professional career and into the larger nursing community, Burdette said. The privilege of caring for patients, sometimes during intimate moments in their lives, brings new levels of responsibility for nursing students, she said. The white coat is symbolic of the professional standards the students will uphold.


“The white coat ceremony is an exciting milestone for the first Aberdeen accelerated nursing class,” she said.


The 12-month nursing program is for students who have completed a bachelor's degree in any field. Graduates receive a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in nursing through the SDSU College of Nursing.
