Federal Grant To Assist Veterans In Nursing Program At U-M Flint

FLINT (WWJ) — A $1 million federal grant to the University of Michigan-Flint will assist military veterans in earning an accelerated degree in nursing.

The 3-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will help the school develop the program, which is scheduled for a January launch. The program is designed to reduce barriers and bring more veterans into the nursing profession.

The nursing department will spend the Fall recruiting and reviewing academic records in preparation for the 2015 start.
