||Loyola Nursing School Receives Training Grant
The Loyola University New Orleans School of Nursing was awarded a $933,271 grant this month to bolster the nation’s health training by supporting Doctor of Nursing Practice students. The grant was awarded from the Nurse Faculty Loan Program administered through the U.S. Public Health Service, Health Resources and Services Administration. The university contributed $103,968 to the grant, bringing the total funding to more than $1 million.
To receive the Nurse Faculty Loan Program funds, doctoral nursing students and graduates agree to obtain full-time faculty positions in schools of nursing throughout the U.S. In return, up to 85 percent of their DNP loans are forgiven. Students and new applicants interested in applying to the DNP program should visit Loyola's website. The early admission deadline for the 2014 DNP online program is Nov. 1. Application information for all DNP programs is available online.
