Point and LaGrange Join Forces to Educate Nurses


Point University and LaGrange College signed an agreement Friday to provide educational opportunities for students with an interest in the nursing profession, with the goal of producing more nurses and medical professionals in Troup County.

The articulation agreement will give Point students who wish to pursue careers in nursing the opportunity to transfer course credits to LaGrange upon their acceptance to the College’s bachelor of science in nursing program.

“Almost every year, we admit a few students as biology majors who desire to ultimately pursue careers in nursing,” said Dr. Dedra Woolfolk, dean of Point’s College of Arts and Sciences. “I am thrilled about this joint venture and excited for the prospective students who will benefit from this partnership.”

“This agreement will allow students who have completed three years of coursework at Point University to have an expedited path to acquiring a nursing degree from LaGrange College,” said Dr. Stephen Waers, chief academic officer at Point. “It creates a seamless pathway for students to pursue nursing degrees and better positions both institutions to serve the local community.”
