HAMMOND, La. (AP) — Southeastern Louisiana University's School of Nursing is offering an advanced training program for nursing students pursuing a graduate degree.

The program is being made available through a $637,350 grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration of the Department of Health and Human Services.
