Citing a growing need for nurses—especially in rural Kansas—the University of Kansas School of Nursing is expanding to Salina.

If nurses are trained in a rural area, they’re more likely to work in a rural area. Sally Maliski, Dean of the KU School of Nursing, says that’s the idea behind the Salina campus.

“Well, it provides an opportunity to get a high-quality education in their home areas, thereby being more likely to stay in those rural areas to practice,” Maliski says.
