BISMARCK, N.D. — Dakotas-based Sanford Health has renegotiated a contract with state and higher education officials to keep a nursing program open in Bismarck.

The action comes after legislators introduced an amendment in the higher education budget that would not allow any state money or private funds to be spent on the program.

North Dakota Board of Higher Education three years ago approved a plan for North Dakota State University to take over the Sanford College of Nursing at Bismarck. Lawmakers have not been happy with the deal. It includes a provision that bumps NDSU’s rent from $1 a year to nearly $400,000 annually beginning in July.

The new deal keeps the $1 annual lease rate in place for the next two years. After that, the lease will be renegotiated.
