More Nursing Students Admitted

Nursing students at NIU will nearly double next year, normally 70 students are admitted each semester but this August they're welcoming 120.

The increase is thanks to financial help from the Illinois board of education as well as Swedish American Hospital and the Freeport Health Network.

The hospitals are providing sites for clinical experience and paying the salary of an instructor.
