MANE Program

Normandale Community College, in collaboration with Community Colleges and Universities within the Minnesota State system, has been actively engaged in the development of the innovative Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education (MANE) nursing curriculum. 

This transformative approach to nursing education encourages deep understanding of key nursing concepts while addressing the changing healthcare environment.

The admission process to Normandale's MANE nursing program admits the student to both the BSN university program as well as Normandale's Associate degree program.
