Midway College has received a $100,000 U.S. Department of Education grant for its nursing education program. The grant will allow the college to purchase equipment and renovate laboratories. It was secured with the help of U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning, and will enable Midway to double the number of students in its nursing program, which awards associate degrees.
Midway College, located in Midway, Ky., has an enrollment of about 1,800 students. As the area grows, "the Midway College Nursing and Health Science Center will strive to meet the needs of health professionals in the region and nation," said Barbara Kitchen, nursing division chair at Midway College.
