HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, October 7, 2008

Missouri Baptist Medical Center in St. Louis will increase its number of baccalaureate nurses through an on-site program.

Missouri Baptist is teaming up with Maryville University in St. Louis to offer a bachelor’s of science in nursing program at the hospital. The program will help Missouri Baptist meet expectations for Force 14 of Magnetism: Professional development, as the hospital pursues ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® designation.

The on-site program is being taught by Maryville faculty, who provide books and supplies to nurses during the weekly classes. So far, more than 35 Missouri Baptist nurses have registered for this on-site program. The hospital looks to graduate its first class in December 2009.
