Nursing degree offered at Berlin hospital

January 26, 2017

BERLIN (WLUK) — Nurses can now earn bachelor’s degrees in Berlin.

ThedaCare announced Monday that it has reached an agreement with Marian University to offer the program. The combined online and classroom education at ThedaCare Medical Center-Berlin takes about 18 months to complete for nurses who already have associate degrees. Coursework includes general education liberal arts classes and advanced nursing classes.

“Some nurses earn a two-year degree so they can start working sooner, but have plans to eventually earn their bachelor’s degree,” Pam Mork, director of nursing at ThedaCare Medical Center-Berlin, said in a news release. “The program in Berlin is one way they can more easily do that.”

The program is open to all nurses who live in the Berlin area. ThedaCare and Marian hope to begin classes in mid-March with 15-20 students.

“The classes are held locally so it is easily accessible and students do not have to worry about traveling back and forth to Fond du Lac for the course,” Stacey Akey, vice president for Alumni, Institutional Partnerships and Career Services for Marian University, said in a news release.

For more information on the program, contact Andrea Wolf, an academic advisor at Marian University, at 920.923.8148.
