Hawaii State Board of Nursing has approved Chaminade’s nursing program, clearing the way for its official launch this fall.

“Our program will address nursing shortages in local communities, the Pacific region and the U.S.continent,” added Chaminade president Brother Bernard Ploeger.

Nursing dean Stephanie Genz now looks forward to graduating about 50 students in 2014 with their BS in nursing. Tuition is $21,880.

Already in place is a curriculum of simulated patient care experiences, clinical informatics skills, geriatrics, cultural competency and more.

Inspired by other major gifts to the nursing program, J. Michael Windsor recently added his $100,000 for an endowed scholarship named for his late wife, Mary.

The vision for the program was ignited in 2006 by former Chaminade president Sue Wesselkamper,and in 2009 the torch was passed to Genz,who is happy to monitor the excitement.“We are only five months away from greeting our first students and can hardly wait,” she said.
