Anoka-Ramsey Community College to serve as key partner in nursing consortium’s development of holistic admission process
July 30, 2019
Anoka-Ramsey Community College’s Nursing Department will work as a key partner to the Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education (MANE) Consortium in the development of new program admission criteria.
The new considerations will allow programs to use a comprehensive picture of each student, considering things like background and life experiences along with test scores, to assess a person’s likelihood to succeed in the program.
Made possible through a one-year grant from Minnesota State, the initiative is designed to help close gaps in the diversity of the MANE nursing student population.
“Once developed and implemented, we expect the new process to lead to increased diversity within our MANE nursing program,” said Sandra Kohler, Dean of Nursing and Allied Health at Anoka-Ramsey Community College. “It will also contribute to our programs maintaining or increasing the success for students by looking at their overall potential to succeed.”
Anoka-Ramsey’s Nursing program (MANE)
The Anoka-Ramsey Community College Nursing program is a member of the Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education (MANE) consortium. MANE is an innovative nursing education consortium between a state university and seven community colleges.
Two unique Nursing curricular tracks offer an Associate of Science degree (AS) in Nursing, a traditional Registered Nurse (RN) track, and a Licensed Practice Nurse (LPN) to RN track. As part of MANE, students in either track are automatically admitted to the baccalaureate program to facilitate completion of a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Nursing.
