25 nursing programs get a share of $78M from Department of Labor

Twenty-five organizations across the U.S. will receive a share of $78 million in grant funds that the Department of Labor has set aside to inject more resources and support into nursing programs, according to a May 11 press release.

All 25 grant recipients will get at least $1 million. The amounts per institution vary. Each amount and institution were chosen by the department using "a peer review process to assist in the review and selection of competitive grant applications," a spokesperson for the Department of Labor shared with Becker's.

"These grants will increase the number of nursing instructors and educators," the release states. "They will also support the creation of equitable opportunities for frontline healthcare professionals to advance on a career pathway, and better meet our nation’s need for critical care today and for years to come."
