Nursing students awarded $350,000 grant for education training at Barry University

Miami Shores, Fla. – Barry University’s Division of Nursing won a competitive grant award for $349,350.  The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) awarded the Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) Program for the second year of this two-year grant. Barry was awarded the grant based on the successful execution of last year’s funds.

The grant money will be used to support programs (MSN and Post-BSN to DNP) for those students studying to become Family Nurse Practitioners or Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioners. One hundred percent of these funds go directly to students for tuition, fees and books.

“I am proud of our team for receiving this competitive grant,” said Dr. John McFadden, dean of the College of Health Sciences. “This grant helps support our commitment to preparing primary care nurse practitioners and improving access to health care for Florida’s citizens.”
