NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State University was named one of four recipients awarded Healthcare Occupations Program grants from The Rapides Foundation to help meet the healthcare workforce needs of employers in Central Louisiana. Northwestern State University received a $719,600 grant in September to increase the number of Bachelor of Science Nursing (BSN) clinical students admitted to its Alexandria campus each year by initiating a Spring clinical admission for a cohort of 20 BSN students. This enhancement is expected to result in an additional 80 BSN graduates, thereby increasing the number of baccalaureate-prepared nurses within The Rapides Foundation service area.
