Officials at Norwich University’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies (CGCS) have announced the renewal of a grant that will support students in the online Master of Science in Nursing program. 
The National Faculty Loan Repayment Program will provide $250,000 towards repayment of student loans to those graduates that go into teaching in nursing schools upon graduation. 
The grant is from the US Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration.  
"We are both excited and thankful to once again receive funding to support students in the program’s Nurse Educator concentration,’said Master of Science in Nursing Program Director Janice Hansen. ‘The size of this award will enable us to support a greater number of students for the entire program than we have been able to do in the past and to do our part to develop qualified nurse educators to create the nurses of the future.’ 
The online Master of Science of Nursing was developed based on American Association of Colleges of Nursing guidelines, offers two concentrations ‘nursing administration and nursing education ‘and is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
