MONTICELLO — The School of Nursing at the University of Arkansas at Monticello has been selected by the Walmart Foundation to receive a $1,500 grant through the retailer’s Local Community Contribution Program.
According to nursing school Dean Laura Evans, the grant will be used to purchase equipment for the school’s Simulation Laboratory, which is used to simulate a hospital setting to provide nursing students with clinical experience. The grant was secured through the efforts of Brandy Haley, assistant professor of nursing and coordinator of the lab.
“I want to commend Ms. Haley for her time and effort while securing this grant. She is leader in our nursing program and her extra effort is one of the reasons UAM produces outstanding nursing graduates,” said Dr. Jimmie Yeiser, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. “This is great news.”
