LRSC nursing program is expanding to Grand Forks

The nursing program at Lake Region State College in Devils Lake is expanding to Grand Forks.

The college will offer a one year Licenses Practical Nurse certificate program starting this fall. Classes will be held at Achieve Therapy and Fitness, across from Altru hospital in Grand Forks. Nursing program director Karen Clementich says there's a high demand for nurses in the Grand Forks region. She says Altru came to the college looking for a way to bring more nurses to the area.

Nursing Coordinator Karen Clementich said, "They were just seeking out what is out there for nursing education. What kind of programs are available? What would be available to help facilitate getting some nurses, perhaps, in their area."

 There will be three open houses in Grand Forks for people interested in pursuing nursing, May 28th and June 4th at Grand Forks Air Force Base, and May 29th at Job Service North Dakota.
