SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The state Board of Regents unanimously approved a University of Iowa request to terminate its master's program in nursing and health-care practice in the College of Nursing at its meeting Tuesday.

The request, which stemmed from recommendations by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing for a better clinical-nurse-leader curriculum, came from UI officials to end the program.

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.
