Military To Get Online BSN Degrees

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, August 21st, 2010


In response to the shortage of nurses in Texas and across the nation, the dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, received $635,187 to offer an eLine Military program (ELM) for Texas residents serving in the military or veterans with prior medical experience.

ELM will be available entirely online to provide a full curriculum for a bachelor’s degree in nursing. It allows military personnel to seamlessly proceed through the courses without repeating prior content and allows for college credit based on medical experience while serving the military.

The ELM program, which focuses on minority students, rural students, and those who are from disadvantaged backgrounds, will employ
a case manager to provide guidance and expertise to students so that they may
access other mainstream resources.

What a great nurse recruitment tool! To learn more nurse recruitment and retention strategies, contact me.
