WATERTOWN, S.D. (KEVN TV) - A joint proposal to create registered nursing programs at Lake Area Technical Institute, Mitchell Technical Institute and Western Dakota Technical Institute has been approved by the State Board of Technical Education.

The two-year programs are designed to help students completing the Licensed Practical Nurse program to obtain an RN degree and to help fill workforce needs in the healthcare industry.

“Our technical institutes are key contributors to South Dakota’s workforce development efforts,” said Dana Dykhouse, chairman of the State Board of Technical Education. Rr
