SPSCC, Saint Martin's to sign dual-admission agreement for nursing studentsLisa Pemberton, staff writer
A signing ceremony is scheduled Monday to kick off a dual-admission agreement between South Puget Sound Community College and Saint Martins University nursing programs. Saint Martins president Roy Heynderickx and SPSCC president Gerald Pumphrey will ink the deal at noon Monday at SPSCC's main campus in Olympia, according to a Saint Martins news release. The agreement will give SPSCC nursing students an opportunity to apply for dual admission to Saint Martins Registered Nurse-to-Bachelor of Science in Nursing (known as RN-to-BSN) program. Students who qualify will be able to receive academic advising from Saint Martins. And once they graduate from SPSCC and pass the registered nurse licensing exam, they will be granted full admission to Saint Martins RN-to-BSN program.
