|College of Nursing receives $12,500 grant|
The College of Nursing has received a $12,500 grant from Dakota Medical Foundation to support fundraising and development training.
The grant will fund a series of four training seminars intended to provide the fundamental skills needed to initiate a self-sustaining fundraising program. Additional consultation over the course of the next year will provide one-on-one training for the College.
“DMF truly understands the needs of non-profits,” said Chandice Covington, dean of nursing. “With state and federal dollars in high demand, it is important that we attain funding from other sources in order to maintain and build the great programs we offer. DMF provides a strong support system for its grantees; we can’t thank them enough for being a champion of our mission.”
Dakota Medical Foundation, based in Fargo, focuses its efforts on improving access to medical and dental care. Since its inception in 1995, the Foundation has invested over $26.5 million in more than 270 non-profit organizations to help them measurably improve health and access to healthcare.

The Department of Nutrition and Dietetics prepares students for roles in community nutrition or dietetics and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education of the American Dietetic Association.
