Darton grant to put more nurses in field

July 13, 2005

Albany- Four hundred and fifty nine thousand dollars will help Darton College put more nurses to work. The two grants will allow Darton to enroll 48 Paramedics into the RN Bridge program and 16 students into a new sleep study program.

Partnering contributions from local corporate sponsors will guarantee students a job upon graduation. The online program allows working paramedics a chance to get their RN certification.

"It gives us another branch to get out there and get our graduates who are high quality out there into the workforce to help with this nursing shortage," said Traci Yawn, Darton Nursing Instructor.

"It's something we've wanted to do for a while, but didn't have the flexibility in our work schedules to do it," said Chris Eubanks, Entering program.

To enroll in the bridge program students must have practical experience in a medical related profession and must complete core academic requirements. The program will begin in the B term of the fall semester.
