SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

University of Iowa officials have requested permission to terminate the master's program in Nursing and Health-Care Practice in the College of Nursing.

Released Thursday as part of the state Board of Regents' agenda for its meeting next week in West Des Moines, the request is stems from recommendatoins by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing for a better clinical-nurse-leader curriculum.

The nursing school has adopted changes to the master's program, including moving to a clinical nursing sub-track in the current master of science in nursing, which is administered by the UI Graduate College, according to the request.

Officials suspended program admissions in June 2007.
