Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - A steady demand for nurses nationally is impacting one college locally, in a positive way.

Students and staff at Rasmussen College in Moorhead are excited to announce an expansion to their current nursing program.

Beginning in January, the college will begin featuring an exclusive RN program.

Currently, the school has 75 students enrolled in their LPN program.

This new nursing lab room was a part of the program's expansion, and students say it makes them feel like they are already out in the real world.

Abbie Eden/Nursing Student: “Definitely prepared us for a feel inside, even umm, nursing homes and hospital both, it’s ah similar in both situations and we get to feel like we are practicing our skills in real life situations instead of just a classroom or a lab.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national number of registered nurses is expected to grow 26% by the year 2020.
