SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Cox College will now be able to accept more students into their nursing program.

The College’s request to accept 150 more nursing students each year was approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing in late February. This will increase its number of nursing students to 400.

As a medical training center, representatives from the college were required to apply to MSBN and show a need in the community – as well as a plan for growth – before being granted approval to accept more students.

The increase will be rolled out incrementally over the next few years. It is a key aspect of the college’s $6.6 million revitalization campaign.
