Date:4/14/2008

JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio, April 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "When I began teaching at the Stark Campus, I knew that nursing should be offered as a four-year program," says Kathryn Cartechine, assistant professor of nursing at Kent State University Stark Campus in North Canton, Ohio.

In 2006, the largest Regional Campus of Kent State University expanded its four-year degree programs to allow students to earn their bachelor's in nursing, making it one of the 11 undergraduate programs offered by the campus.

Cartechine spoke of the nursing faculty's knowledge and expertise. "Each is an expert in a specialty area in which students have interest, giving them the ability to mentor them in a specific field of study."

Another soon-to-be graduate is Susan Tortora, who began college at the Kent Campus, but transferred to the Stark Campus to complete the nursing program.

Wandel agreed with Tortora, saying that the faculty ensures student success by helping them when they notice a problem. "If you get a bad test score, that instructor is going to seek you out to figure out what we
