Frontier Nursing University has announced a planned expansion to Versailles, KY, scheduled to take place later this year. After enrollment grew from 200 to more than 1,600 over the past decade, an expansion was necessary to accommodate the growing student population.
The university is buying Kentucky Methodist Homes’ property in Versailles which includes a dozen buildings. It is being sold by the Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children & youth, a nonprofit corporation that cares for abused, neglected, or abandoned children, which will be downsizing to another location.
Frontier President Dr. Susan Stone released the following statement according to www.Kentucky.com:
“We are expanding our Central Kentucky operations by moving our administrative office to Versailles, where we will develop additional capacity to serve students. Frontier Nursing University will leverage this property in new ways, but with the same focus on improving health and wellness for families in Kentucky and beyond.”
Frontier offers digital graduate level education to registered nurses who want to become nurse practitioners or nurse midwives. However, students are required to travel to the Kentucky campus for orientations and education sessions to prepare them for online work and clinical experiences. The use of the new space will be determined at a later date, and the school’s present headquarters will continue to be used in addition to the new campus space.
