Kettering College Division of Nursing was recently awarded a grant by the Ohio Board of Nursing through its Nurse Education Grant Program (NEGP). The NEGP financially supports Kettering’s plans to increase its undergraduate nursing student enrollment capacity. The grant is distributed over two years and will fund a nursing faculty position in the new accelerated nursing pre-licensure nursing track starting Fall of 2022. The Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) recently accepted the Division of Nursing’s substantial change report for its program enrollment growth. The Division of Nursing is excited to have this opportunity to address the nursing shortage through the financial support of the Board of Nursing’s NEGP.
