Loyola School of Nursing Online DNP Program Receives Federal Grant for Health Training

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) July 18, 2013

The Loyola University New Orleans School of Nursing was recently awarded a $933,271 grant to bolster the nation’s health training by supporting Doctor of Nursing Practice students. The grant was awarded this month 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.

“With such a large grant dedicated to supporting DNP students at Loyola, we are helping to train tomorrow’s nursing leaders who will in turn play an important role in training the nation’s upcoming nurses—strengthening the health care field for years to come,” said Ann H. Cary, Ph.D., M.P.H, R.N., professor, director of the Loyola School of Nursing and principal investigator of the grant.

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.
