Placeholder Image


Starting in the fall of 2012, students in the Registered Nursing program at Barton Community College may need one more three-hour course to graduate. These and other items are on the agenda for the BCC Board of Trustees’ October study session, set for 4 p.m. Thursday in the Seminar Room, F-30 of the Fine Arts Auditorium.

According to study session materials, the plan is to add the course RN Leadership & Management to the program for Registered Nurses.

The board will also learn what the Kansas Board of Regents is proposing for a new Associate of Applied Science in Technical Studies degree.

Other items on the agenda are a financial statement for the college, information on the statewide articulation process that would improve the transfer of community college credits to state universities, an update on the accreditation portfolio for AQIP, and information about BCC Foundation dialogue with the City of Great Bend.

There will be an update on the Kansas Association of Community College Trustees’ legislative agenda, trustee Robert Feldt will give an update on the Camp Aldrich committee and chairman Mike Johnson will talk about position appointments at the college.
