Minneapolis, Minn. (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
The Minnesota School of Business (MSB) bachelor of science in nursing program has been included as a chapter school member of the Chi-at-Large chapter of the prestigious Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) Nursing Honor Society. The induction ceremony took place at St. Olaf College in early November. MSB’s nursing program joins four other Minnesota nursing schools—Bethel University, St. Catherine University, Gustavus Adolphus College and St. Olaf College—as Chi-at-Large school members of the honor society.
The mission of Sigma Theta Tau International is “to support the learning, knowledge and professional development of nurses committed to making a difference in health worldwide” with a vision to “create a global community of nurses who lead in using knowledge, scholarship, service and learning to improve the health of the world’s people.”
As a member school of Chi-at-Large, faculty and students are charged with developing nursing leaders that are committed to the ideals and purposes of the nursing profession. In order to be recognized by STTI, nursing students must still meet the academic organization’s standards to achieve and maintain membership in the honor society.
Efforts to qualify MSB’s nursing program for STTI’s rigorous requirements were led by faculty member Raney Linck, who also serves at the international level of STTI as Region Four Chapter coordinator overseeing chapters in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North and South Dakota, and the Canadian province of Manitoba.
Since beginning its bachelor’s of science in nursing program in 2006, Globe University and the Minnesota School of Business have graduated 132 students. There are currently 115 students in the school’s growing program. The twelve-quarter (three-year) nursing degree program provides a comprehensive nursing curriculum preparing graduates to practice in a diverse global community. The nursing program is taught at a major campus in Richfield, Minn., near Minneapolis.
In the most recent reporting year of 2010-2011 the college’s nursing program had a 95 percent retention rate and 97 percent job placement rate.*
