Step #9: Marquette Tribune Reports on "Direct Entry" Problems

The article gives a brief, but accurate, overview of the main problem with the Direct Entry program - that students are not legally eligible for RN licensure in Wisconsin unless Marquette starts granting them a "diploma of graduation" at the completion of the pre-MSN phase.
