Nursing program gets grant

by Kalamalama staff

The HPU School of Nursing was recently awarded a $34,000 Advance Practice Nursing Traineeship Grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Service Administration.

 

 
The grant allows HPU to award Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) students with one-time, partial-tuition scholarships. The recipients must demonstrate a willingness to work in underserved areas of nursing and have their employment tracked for three years after graduation.

 

HPU’s Graduate Nursing program received a similar grant of $32,000 last year. That award allowed HPU the opportunity to award eight graduate nursing students with one-time tuition scholarships for the fall 2002 semester.
 
“This award is an exciting opportunity for the University to offer second-year masters in science and post-masters certificate students partial-tuition scholarships,” said Dr. Patricia Lange-Otsuka, MSN program chair. “The funding will also help get more advanced practice nurses out into the community and provide greater access to health care.” For more information, call 236-5850.
