OCU’s Kramer School of Nursing Wins Advanced Education Grant
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City University’s Kramer School of Nursing will offer up to 28 new stipends this fall for graduate students after receiving an advanced nursing education grant. The $26,795 grant was awarded this month by the Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. OCU’s graduate nursing programs are designed to reduce the shortage of nursing educators and administrators in the U.S. OCU Associate Nursing Professor Susan Barnes said Oklahoma has a particular need to increase graduate education among nurses given its educator shortage and a shortage of nurses with advanced degrees in the clinical setting. “This grant makes a very positive statement about Oklahoma nurses making a difference in health care,” Barnes said.
