The faculty of Mary Grimes School of Nursing are pleased to announce that the concept based curriculum revision has been approved by the Kansas State Board of Nursing and Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN)  to begin in the fall 2016 semester with the Chanute and Independence sites.
