BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - To keep up with the growing demand for nurses, Rasmussen College is expanding its nursing program.

Starting in October, associate degrees in nursing will now be offered at the Bloomington and St. Cloud campuses.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national number of registered nurses is expected to grow 26 percent by 2020, faster than the national average for all other occupations.

Applications are currently being accepted for both programs. You can learn more by attending a nursing information session or Thursday's open house from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Bloomington campus, which is located at 4400 West 78th Street.
