With the U.S. experiencing a shortage of nurses, and nursing schools packed to (their typically small) capacity, has Drake ever considered adding a nursing school?  I would think it could be done in conjunction with Des Moines University and the DMU Clinic.  

Thoughts?

I think Drake briefly had one about 15 years ago, but didn't last long.

Looks like Drake also has some kind of joint degree program with Mercy's nursing school.   link

Drake, which has an enrollment of 5,300 and was founded in 1881, faced insolvency a little more than a decade ago after most of its senior management had left. But after taking over in 1999, Maxwell cut expensive underenrolled programs like graduate-level nursing and redirected resources into high-demand offerings like its undergraduate pharmacy major. For the last eight years Drake has shown small operating profits, and its endowment has grown to $169 million from $104 million in 1999. While Drake is still largely tuition-dependent, it earns a C+ for financial health among private colleges.

Graduate level nursing is not where the shortage exists.
