The head of the South Dakota Board of Nursing says Western Dakota Technical Institute has made significant progress in addressing board concerns and its nursing program can stay open.
Board executive director Gloria Damgaard says that the school has hired a new director and appears to be on track to gain full approval. The school will remain on probation until 2015.
The board in 2011 found that faculty turnover at the school was too high, salaries were too low, record keeping was lax and the clerical staff was virtually non-existent. Students claimed the program was disorganized.
Institute administrators had until March 31 to prove they were on track to meet the standards set by the state board or be shut down.
