Nursing Department Receives $150,000 Grant

The Nursing Department received a Nursing Education Incentive Grant for the maximum amount of $150,000.

The Education Incentive Grant is awarded to organizations to expand the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ASBN) program. The funds will help meet increased demand, create market-competitive salary and benefit packages needed to attract and retain highly qualified faculty for didactic and clinical teaching, add at least two clinical/instructional adjunct faculty positions to increase the frequency of nursing course offerings, expand clinical sites and partnerships and increase recruitment efforts for prospective ABSN students.

This is the second time the Nursing Department has received this grant. Truman was one of seven schools in Missouri to receive an Education Incentive Grant. For more information, visit
