Concord University and other institutions to receive $48 million to establish nursing programs

ATHENS, WV (WOAY) – Concord University is set to receive millions of federal dollars for a nursing program. 

Gov. Justice announced Tuesday $48 million from the CARES Act will be split between Glenville State College, Concord University and Bridge Valley Community and Technical Center to start or expand nursing programs.

“As we continue to navigate life amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for health care workers is greater than ever, and Concord University is grateful for the opportunity to again serve the region and state by establishing a nursing program,” Dr. Boggess said.

Concord University says they have already begun work on a nursing curriculum.
