Sauk Valley partners with Saint Anthony for nursing program
DIXON – Local nurses next fall will have a convenient way to continue their education.
Sauk Valley Community College has partnered with Saint Anthony College of Nursing in Rockford to offer associate-degree-trained nurses the opportunity to earn their bachelor’s degrees.
Nurses who have their associate degree are employable, but nurses who have a bachelor’s degree are that much more marketable, said Janet Lynch, dean of health professions at Sauk.
“That’s where the industry is going,” Lynch said. “Patient care is getting more difficult. Patients are more critically ill. The additional education is beneficial ... and some indicate it enhances patient outcomes.”
