Albany--Darton College's nursing program receives a big shot in the arm today in the form of a federal nursing grant.

The two-point five million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Labor will allow Darton College to admit up to 100 new students into its registered nursing program for the next three years, as well as develop the first online nursing degree program in the Southeast.

Darton nursing program faculty say the grant will have a significant impact on both medical care and economic development in Southwest Georgia.

"It will be to offset the nursing shortage here in southwest Georgia, rural areas. People who want to go into nursing will have options of taking online classes. Staying in the rural areas so they don't have to travel to Albany, and to help those critical needs in the community" said Kim Crib with Darton College.  The program will begin admitting additional students to the program in January.
