Belhaven gets approval to start nuring program
Published: June 19,2014
JACKSON — State officials are initially approving Belhaven University’s plan to start a nursing program.
The College Board voted to allow the private Jackson university to start admitting students this fall to a program that will let them earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing.
The board will still have to give final approval to the program as the first class graduates, in June 2016. College Board documents say the school would seek national accreditation at the same time.
Belhaven officials say that despite many other nursing programs in Mississippi, labor market projections still show a future need for new nurses, especially in the Jackson area.
Associate Provost Dennis Watts says Belhaven’s close proximity to major hospitals in Jackson makes nursing a natural fit for the university.
