Andrew College to offer nursing degree

CUTHBERT, GA (WALB) - Andrew College is applying to the Georgia Board of Nursing for an associate degree in nursing.

The school has hired Debra C. Hairr, D.H.Sc, M.S.N., RNC-OB, as its Director of Nursing and Professor of Nursing.

"This new degree program will have a profound impact on our local community, desperate for qualified healthcare providers. It's a win-win for both the College and for our citizens," said Cuthbert Mayor and Andrew trustee, Steve Whatley.

Andrew College will also submit a change request to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on College (SACSCOC).

Andrew College expects to welcome its first cohort of nursing students in the fall of 2017.
