Missouri State expands nursing program, McQueary Health Sciences Hall

Missouri State’s nursing program is expanding to help prepare more nurses to fill local jobs, something identified as a pressing need even before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The university’s nursing program is frequently at capacity with a waiting list.

Contributions from the McQueary family and others along with nearly $3 million from the MoExcels Workforce Initiative will make it possible for MSU and the Ozarks Technical Community College to expand their health care programs.
