The College of the Canyons nursing program has been awarded more than $284,000 in grant funding through the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development Song-Brown Program.

"We appreciate that the state recognizes the tremendous need to train more nurses even in the face of the current budget shortfalls," said Sue Albert, COC's dean of Allied Health. "This additional funding will enable COC to continue to address the statewide nursing shortage by training 10 additional nursing students each semester."

The grant funding will also help pay for additional nursing faculty and staff to better serve the department's growing list of students, while providing tools to help improve the program's student retention rates.
