WCU earns grant to train family nurses

Written by 

Western Carolina University’s School of Nursing is the recipient of nearly $700,000 in federal grant funding to help address a shortage of primary health care providers in Western North Carolina.

The Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is awarding WCU $349,877 annually during a two-year period to increase student enrollment in it’s specialized master’s degree program for family nurse practitioners.

The funding will be used to support second- and third-year graduate students in the university’s program by providing up to $11,000 annually to each student to help defray the cost of education, including assistance with the cost of tuition, fees, books and living expenses.
