“The Nursing program has seen tremendous growth over the years—which I’m so honored to be a part of— and it wouldn’t have been possible without our supportive community. This celebration is to thank all of you and celebrate the success of our graduates and alumni,” said Sandra Kohler, Dean of Nursing.
The Anoka-Ramsey Nursing program is a member of the Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education (MANE). The MANE program is an alliance across multiple Minnesota colleges and universities to increase baccalaureate degrees for nursing students in the state.
The Nursing program began in 1967 with its first cohort.
The program has experienced numerous highlights throughout its 50 years.
- The Cambridge Campus admitted its first Nursing cohort in 2003 and graduated its first class in 2004.
- The program purchased a 3G SimMan patient simulator in 2010.
- The curriculum changed to MANE (Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education) in conjunction with Metropolitan State University for dual admission in 2014.
- The first MANE students graduated from the program in 2017.
Each year the program places 85 percent of its students into the Twin Cities and surrounding areas.
Graduates and alumni are encouraged to attend. Register for the event and purchase tickets here.
The public and the Anoka-Ramsey community is encouraged to follow AnokaRamsey.edu/Nursing50th throughout the year for updates on more celebratory events and information about the success of the program over the years.
