Anoka-Ramsey Community College MANE Nursing Program
Starting Fall 2014: Anoka-Ramsey Community College Nursing Program (MANE)
The Anoka-Ramsey Community College nursing program is a member of the Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education (MANE) consortium. MANE is an innovative nursing education consortium between a state university and 7 community colleges. This partnership includes Metropolitan State University, Anoka-Ramsey Community College, Century College, Inver Hills Community College, Normandale Community College, North Hennepin Community College, Ridgewater College, and Riverland Community College. This transformative approach to nursing education encourages deep understanding of key nursing concepts while addressing the changing healthcare environment.
The consortium has evolved in response to the evidence and with a commitment to excellence and innovation to partner to expand the capacity for baccalaureate prepared nurses in Minnesota. The goal of MANE is to make baccalaureate nursing education available to students across the state, allowing qualified students to graduate with a baccalaureate degree within four years on every partner campus. The collaborative nursing curriculum, developed jointly with practice partners will prepare the nurse of the future to care for Minnesota’s increasingly diverse and aging population.
Clinical learning experiences are provided at hospitals and community health care facilities throughout the metro and the surrounding suburbs. Two unique nursing curricular tracks are offered with the option of an Associate in Science Degree (A.D.) in Nursing. The basic Nursing Program, “Traditional Track,” and the “Mobility Track” both require completion of an entire three semester nursing course sequence and liberal arts requirements. Students are automatically admitted to the Baccalaureate program to facilitate completion of a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Nursing. In the acute care setting, preference for hiring is given to applicants who have completed a Bachelor’s in Nursing or are enrolled in a Bachelor’s degree program.
The MANE curriculum application deadlines as noted:
Fall 2016-Deadline for application is February 1, 2016
Spring 2017-Deadline for application is June 1, 2016
All students applying to the Nursing Program are required to attend a Nursing Information Session and submit a current certificate of attendance with the nursing application. **Nursing requirements subject to change without notice.
