Norwich University’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies (CGCS) has announced the renewal of a grant that will support students in the online Master of Science in Nursing program.

The National Faculty Loan Repayment Program will provide $250,000 towards the repayment of student loans to those graduates that agree to go into teaching in an accredited nursing school upon graduation.

The grant is from the US Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration.

“Norwich is both excited and honored to once again receive funding to support students in the program’s nurse education concentration for the third consecutive year,” said Master of Science in Nursing Program Director Janice Hansen. “This generous award will allow us to support an increasing number of students and to do our part to develop qualified nurse educators to create the nurses of the future.”

The online Master of Science in Nursing was developed based on American Association of Colleges of Nursing guidelines, offers two tracks – nursing administration and nursing education – and is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
