Thanks to a valued partnership between two institutions and the Texoma Health Foundation, the East Central University at Southeastern Nursing Department in Durant is receiving a $55,000 grant to update its facility. The update will help expand opportunities for nursing candidates. “We would not have been able to accomplish this without the help of the Texoma Health Foundation. This is a major cooperative effort by two institutions of higher learning and the Texoma Health Foundation,” said ECU President John R. Hargrave. “It will help our students, placing them in a more enhanced learning environment and benefit the residents of a four-county area in Oklahoma and Texas.” The grant, provided by the Texoma Health Foundation, will help accommodate 32 additional nursing students, for a total of 95, in the program on the Southeastern Oklahoma State University campus.
