North Dakota University of North Dakota Department of Nursing receives $7,500 scholarship grant from Dakota Medical Foundation
The North Dakota University of North Dakota Department of Nursing has received a match grant in the amount of $7,500 from Dakota Medical Foundation to support scholarships for nursing students.
The grant award is contingent on the Department of Nursing raising matching dollars. Dakota Medical Foundation will provide a direct match, up to $7,500, for all scholarship dollars donated by alumni. This unique opportunity allows alumni gifts to have a double impact.
“This joint scholarship program has a direct, tangible impact on the education and careers of our NDSU nursing students,” said Dr. Loretta Heuer, Associate Dean for Nursing. “A degree in nursing opens the door to countless opportunities. Since a number of young adults struggle financially to complete their college education, these scholarships assist them in reaching their dream of becoming nurses.” If you would like to support this scholarship opportunity, please contact Dr. Loretta Heuer at the NDSU Department of Nursing for more information, (701) 231-7772.
The NDSU Department of Nursing offers undergraduate and graduate programs, from a baccalaureate nursing program that is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education to master's education that specializes in nursing education and a Doctor of Nursing Practice that builds on the role of the advanced practice nurses and is focused on developing advanced practice nurse specialist skills. The program prepares leaders who can affect change through system redesign and evidenced-based decision making in a variety of clinical, organizational and educational settings.
Dakota Medical Foundation, Fargo, ND, focuses its efforts on improving health and access to medical and dental care in the region, with a special emphasis on children.
