Former Barat Academy Location Will Be Site for LU Nursing Program

September 28, 2012

Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo., has taken a critical step toward adding a new nursing program with the acquisition of the former location of Barat Academy in Dardenne Prairie Thursday, Sept. 27. The university plans to use the site as the base for post-associate degree coursework in nursing it will begin offering next year.

Dr. James D. Evans, president of Lindenwood University, said the university plans to start offering the post-associate degree coursework in nursing in the fall 2013 semester. Occupational therapy assistant, physical therapy assistant, and emergency medical technician programs and others are also being considered conceptually.

“We are excited about the opportunity to give graduates of associate degree nursing programs the chance to earn a Bachelor of Science in such a beautiful building,” Evans said. “Increasingly, hospitals are requiring four-year degrees from nursing candidates. We will play a significant role in providing the necessary credentials for nursing candidates to succeed in a field that is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years as baby boomers age.”

The site consists of a 69,000-square-foot building on a 28-acre lot. It includes multiple classrooms, a gymnasium, and fully equipped chemistry labs. A dean for the university’s new Nursing and Allied Health Sciences Program has also been hired. A specific announcement is forthcoming.
