First students earn nursing degrees

Nine Dordt College nursing students received their associate degree in nursing at St. Luke's College on Friday, May 16, allowing them to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Health Science (BHS) degree at Dordt College next year.

Dordt College and St. Luke's College collaborate in a 1-2-1 program, allowing students to achieve a BHS degree by spending their first and fourth years in full-time study at Dordt, while attending the hospital-based training in Sioux City during their second and third years of education.

The nine Dordt students awarded associate nursing degrees were Hope Franken, Joni Van Voorst and Leann Veenstra, Sioux Center; Jodi Kramer, Thamesville, Ontario; Nadine Mast, Wyoming, Michigan; Lindsey Miller, Yakima, Washington; Michelle Reedyk, Smithers, British Columbia; Cindy Scholten, Lynden, Washington; and Laura Van Dyke, Sheldon, Iowa.
