·1 min read

Dec. 22—Nursing students have another option for study in Jamestown.

Dakota College at Bottineau announced Tuesday it will offer an additional Dakota Nursing Program site at the North Dakota State Hospital in the fall of 2022.

Students of the program would receive a Practical Nursing degree upon completion of an 11-month program. They may also continue their nursing education working toward an associate degree also available through Dakota College.

Dakota Nursing Program sites through Dakota College at Bottineau now have extended to four distant sites that include Minot (Trinity Health) location, Rugby (Heart of America location), Valley City (Mercy Hospital location) and Jamestown (North Dakota State Hospital location).

"We are excited to bring a practical nursing program to the Jamestown area to assist in combating the nursing shortage seen within the state," said Paige Baade, MSN, RN director of nursing at DCB. "The partnerships with DCB from the North Dakota State Hospital and the University of Jamestown is what helps make this program possible."

Beth Satrom, director of nursing at the State Hospital, said the program could be beneficial to the hospital.

"We are excited about this partnership and the opportunity to train high-quality nurses that will be available in the community and in the state," she said.
