This fall there will be 24 more Bachelor of Nursing Science students at the University of New Mexico College of Nursing thanks to additional funds given to the college this summer from the New Mexico Commission on Higher Education.

As part of legislature efforts to increase the number of nurses in New Mexico, the commission gave the college $295,000 to bring in more students. That brings the total of new BSN students admitted to the College of Nursing for fall to 72.

The UNM College of Nursing provides nursing education, research, service and leadership in nursing for the state of New Mexico. With baccalaureate,  master's and doctoral level education and web-based programs in such areas as BSN completion for RNs, nursing education, and community health, the college focuses on asking and answering the most difficult questions about nursing care and how nurses can design and manage health care delivery to meets the needs of the state.
