The UNC Charlotte School of Nursing has been awarded a grant of about $706,000 to fund a three-year program to increase nursing education opportunities for educationally disadvantaged and minority students.
The grant, from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is expected to add 30 students to the UNC Charlotte program. The first group of such students started classes in the summer.
