Senators Cooke and Marble, co-prime sponsors, presented House Bill 18-1300. The bill allows Aims Community College (Aims) to offer a bachelor of science degree in nursing as a completion degree for students who have or are pursuing an associate degree in nursing. The college's board of trustees must determine if the degree program serves the needs of the communities within the college's service area. Under current law, Aims only has authority to offer bachelor of applied science degrees.
