Bill allowing community colleges to offer 4-year nursing, early childhood education degrees heads to governor’s desk

Published on May 30, 2017 under CommunityImpact

A bill that would allow Texas community colleges to offer students four-year degrees in certain areas of study is now on the desk of Gov. Greg Abbott. Senate Bill 2118, proposed by Sen. Kel Seliger, R-Amarillo, would allow community colleges to offer bachelor’s degrees in nursing and applied science and technology, including an applied science program with an emphasis on early childhood education. Austin Community College has been pursuing the four-year nursing degree for several years, and ACC President and CEO Richard Rhodes said in a statement he was thankful for the support from the Legislature.
