Federal grant to help rural nursing students

Bismarck, ND – Bismarck State College will have a new tool to help serve students in rural communities.

A simulator at BSC in Bismarck can give students training when caring for someone with all different types of medical problems. Now, a $100,000 federal grant will allow the college to buy a mobile version of this. It can take it around North Dakota to all of its satellite campuses so that nursing students all over the area are getting the best education possible.

“It’s a great way for us to still offer that level of education and so I think this will attract more students to those satellite sites within the Dakota Nursing Program,” Assistant Professor of Nursing Annie Paulson said.

B-S-C is still taking more nursing students. If you want more information about the nursing program, e-mail Paulson at andrea.l.paulson@bismarckstate.edu
