ASU West offers nursing program year-round - 2004-12-28 - The Business Journal of Phoenix: "The professional nursing program at Arizona State University's West campus has moved to a year-round schedule beginning with the August 2005 class, school officials said Tuesday. The program, hosted in the College of Human Services, takes approximately 16 months, using the summer as a regular semester. 'This decision was made based on community and student demand for more nurses, more quickly,' said College of Nursing Associate Dean Mary Killeen. 'The nursing shortage in Arizona is still at a critical point and we simply need to move nurses into the work force more rapidly. This not only benefits hospitals and health care organizations, but helps our students start earning professional salaries earlier.'"
