Grant Helps Nursing Program

Grant Helps Nursing Program

Southeast’s successful nursing program received a grant in late 2010 to offer students additional support. The $475,662 grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH) will underwrite critical nursing education programs and allow the Department of Nursing to implement an integrated tutoring and skill-building support program to improve nursing student retention.

“We know the accelerated second degree Bachelor of Science in nursing program meets the needs of many in our region, and the funds from MFH will allow us to educate more nursing students through this successful program,” says Dr. Marcia Hobbs, chair of the Department of Nursing. “We are also excited about providing expanded opportunities for success in our accelerated BSN, online RN-to-BSN and traditional BSN program.”

Southeast’s baccalaureate nursing program is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. Southeast graduates have a high first-time success rate in passing the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Licensing Exam for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
