Bethune-Cookman College to Double the Size of Its Nursing School

Bethune-Cookman College is planning to double the size of its nursing school. The historically black educational institution in Daytona Beach, Florida, has raised nearly $2 million to buy land and a building that was the site of an automobile dealership. After renovations are completed the building will house eight classrooms, a 300-seat lecture hall, and three laboratories.

Bethune-Cookman looks to increase enrollments from about 55 new nursing students each year to 120 new students.
