A looming national shortage of nurses is prompting the University of South Dakota to look at expanding its two-year associate program to include a four-year bachelor-level degree.
Last week, the state Board of Regents gave USD its blessing to look at expanding its program, in large part because of the regents’ recognition of the need, board executive director Jack Warner said.
“In addition to shortages that are projected, there is also an awareness that many associate degree graduates, if they want upward mobility in their professions, they’re going to need a bachelor degree,” Warner said.

WASHINGTON, DC - August 10, 2009 - (RealEstateRama) — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development today announced a commitment to insure a mortgage loan to Fall River Health Services (FRHS) in Hot Springs, South Dakota, to construct a 10-bed addition to the 15-bed replacement hospital currently under construction. The $2.4 million loan to FRHS, a critical access hospital, is made possible through the Federal Housing Administration’s Section 242 Hospital Mortgage Insurance Program.
In September 2008, HUD issued a $16.7 million mortgage insurance commitment to Fall River Health Services to build a replacement hospital and rural health clinic. The commitment announced today provides for construction of additional beds to accommodate anticipated volume increases in the future. By insuring the mortgage loan, FHA is enabling Fall River Health Services to obtain lower cost financing, saving the hospital almost $800,000 in interest expense over the life of the loan.

FARGO, N.D. - A group of civic and business leaders is urging North Dakota’s MeritCare Health System to give more details a possible merger with South Dakota’s Sanford Health.

“We feel that should not be executed before some other things are done,” Furness said Friday.

It’s clear from the skyline of Sioux Falls - where health care fuels much of the economy - that sweeping changes to the nation’s health care landscape could leave an imprint on the city.
On one side of town, a new Sanford Children’s Hospital gleams during the day and blue lights fill the night sky. To the east, cranes tower over Avera McKennan Hospital and University Health Center, where green lights glow.
As Congress and the White House embark on a monthslong process aimed at reforming the nation’s health care system, the effects of whatever new model emerges could be more pronounced here than in many other American cities, observers say.
