The North Dakota Board of Higher Education has approved a plan for North Dakota State University to take over the Sanford College of Nursing.
The new college will be NDSU Nursing at Sanford Health. It will be part of NDSU's department of nursing and operate at its current location in Bismarck. All faculty and staff currently employed by the Sanford college will become NDSU employees.
The board approved the plan over objections by some members who complained there wasn't enough discussion on the idea and wondered whether the agreement would give a private business a competitive advantage.
Sanford Bismarck president Craig Lambrecht says Sanford hires 1,000 nurses a year and has "triple digit openings" for nurses.
Sanford Health is based in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Fargo, N.D.
