Butler Community College Signs Nursing Agreement with Fort Hays State University
Butler students can now receive guaranteed admission to FHSU BSN program.
Butler Community College and several other Kansas community colleges have signed an agreement with Fort Hays State University which will allow nursing graduates guaranteed admission to Fort Hays State’s bachelor’s program in nursing.
Presidents of 11 Kansas community colleges signed the agreement last month at the State Capitol in Topeka. The foundation of the agreement began with conversations between Fort Hays State and Colby Community College and grew to include each Kansas community college with a nursing program.
“This is the first agreement of its kind for community college nursing programs in Kansas with a four-year institution. This creates another great pathway for Butler students to continue their education in Nursing,” said Butler President Dr. Kimberly Krull.
The Fort Hays State agreement adds to the growing number of transfer agreements Butler holds with four-year institutions across the region and the state, a sign of the widely-recognized quality of Butler’s nursing education program.
