Nursing Program To Be Added to UC Beckley

The University of Charleston plans to establish an associate degree nursing program at its Beckley campus in response to area demand for more nurses. The program would fill a void left by the closure of Mountain State University. The University of Charleston took over Mountain State's campuses in Beckley and Martinsburg on Jan. 1, 2013, after Mountain State lost its accreditation. The nursing program would require board approval.
