FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): More University of Saint Francis nursing students can go to school cheaper thanks to a grant.

The University of Saint Francis nursing program received a $350,000 grant for the fifth consecutive year, according to a USF press release.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Human Resources and Service Administration’s (HRSA) donation of the Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) grant will aid morbidity and mortality in under-served populations.

Including this year’s grant, more than 150 USF nursing students have received $1.5 million dollars toward tuition over the past five years.

“The graduate nursing program has honored the mission of the University of Saint Francis by encouraging an environment that fosters learning, leadership and service,” said USF MSN graduate Ashley Boettcher.
