HAMMOND - Southeastern Louisiana University's School of Nursing is offering an advanced training program for nursing students pursuing a graduate degree.

The program is being made available through a $637,350 grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration of the Department of Health and Human Services.

University officials said the grant will support 15 students for two years.

Graduate nursing coordinator Lorinda Sealey said the program is designed to increase the number of healthcare providers in underserved areas.

Southeastern's graduate nursing program is part of a four-university consortium that includes the University of Louisiana-Lafayette, McNeese State University and Nicholls State University.
