(4/20/12) After this spring, U-W Madison says it will no longer run a nursing education program in La Crosse.
The university says it’s consolidating its nursing school on the Madison campus. And juniors and seniors will no longer be able to finish their degree requirements at Gundersen Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse. The arrangement has been in place for seven years. Mary Lu Gerke of Gunderson says her institution will keep working with local colleges to train enough nurses to meet the needs in western Wisconsin.
