           Daemen College has been awarded $34,401 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration for Advanced Education Nursing Traineeships.

  

           The Daemen Nursing Program has received more than $400,000 over the 13 years that the College has been a recipient of this grant. Funds are used toward scholarships for students in Daemen's graduate nursing programs.

  

           “With the emphasis in the Institute of Medicine Report The Future of Nursing on nurses advancing their educational credentials, we are thrilled to be able to help nurses to afford to be able to continue their education,” said Daemen Professor of Nursing and Nursing Department Chair Mary Lou Rusin, B.S., M.S., Ed.D.

 

           “Major changes in the U.S. health care system and the increasing complexity of the health care environment present ongoing challenges to all health care professionals. By engaging in continued lifelong learning, nurses will ensure the delivery of high quality, patient-centered care across all settings, especially in areas such as primary care, and community and public health.”

 

           Graduate nursing students at Daemen who are in their final year of study will be eligible for grant-related funding for the fall, 2011 semester. 

 

           Daemen College will hold an Open House for undergraduate and graduate nursing students 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 27, 2011 in the Research & Information Commons. For more information, please contact the Admissions Office: 716-839-8225/800-462-7652 or admissions@daemen.edu.
