The College of Health Sciences at Appalachian State University has received a $300,000 grant to begin steps that could lead to creation of a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree program that would be offered off campus, including Caldwell County. The funding has been made possible by Caldwell 20/20 (Photo by Susan Simmons) through its collaborative efforts and partnerships with Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute and Appalachian, with initial funding provided by the Broyhill Family Foundation. Caldwell 20/20 is an economic development organization comprised of business, education and community leaders in Caldwell County. Its focus includes healthcare, education and technology as a regional economic development initiative. The organization was established in 2008. Appalachian will use the funds to develop its proposal to offer the MSN degree, which must be approved by the University of North Carolina Board of Governors. The grant also will support hiring a consultant who will provide program development support, and will be used to develop a feasibility study and needs assessment regarding the proposed degree, along with curriculum and course proposals.
