Through a partnership with Hopkinsville Community College, Murray State University School of Nursing and Health Professions now offers a blended Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.

The program has been implemented for the current fall semester with 55 nursing students from HCC participating in the blended BSN program.

Upon completion of their associate's degree and passing the national license exam, student can transfer to Murray State to begin an online RN - to - BSN program.

This is the third such agreement involving Murray State's School of Nursing as similar partnerships are in place with Madisonville Community College and Henderson Community College.

“As a result of our great partnership with Hopkinsville Community College, students who have successfully completed their degree requirements and nursing licensure exam can seamlessly transfer to Murray State to continue their studies through our School of Nursing,” said Carol Murch, assistant professor and RN-to-BSN program coordinator at Murray State. “Graduates of this blended program will succeed in a career that influences the well-being of individuals, families and communities.”

“HCC is excited about this opportunity that will allow our nursing students to continue their education with Murray State University,” said Peggy Bozarth, HCC professor and director of nursing. "As a matter of fact, 100 percent of our first semester nursing students have already signed up to be a part of this blended program."
