Department of Nursing Earns $150,000 Grant

The Department of Nursing has been awarded a grant of $150,000 from the Missouri Board of Nursing and the Department of Higher Education.

Eight Missouri universities were selected to receive grants of up to $150,000 through the Nursing Education Incentive Grant to expand their nursing education programs. The grants, totaling nearly $1 million, aim to increase the number of nurses in Missouri, especially in areas where a shortage of health care professionals exists.

The funds will be used to add faculty and create new programs that will allow more students to study nursing.
