Nursing student practices looking into eyes of other nursing student

A study from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has projected that the demand for registered nurses nationwide will be more than 3.6 million by 2030. That’s why a $5.5 million grant ASU recently received from the Arizona Department of Health Services is significant. The funds will result in a new cohort of 104 nurses starting this summer and graduating in summer 2024.
