SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The College of Nursing at SUNY Upstate Medical University has been awarded $39,766 from the Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA) to provide scholarships for nurses pursuing advanced degrees in nursing.

HRSA is a program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services designed to develop a culturally competent and diverse workforce.

“This support from HRSA is vital in helping nurses continue their education and enhance their knowledge of advanced nursing practices,” said Elvira Szigeti, Ph.D., R.N., dean of the College of Nursing.

Ten students will receive the scholarships.
