Officials announced Thursday that Cal State Los Angeles’ School of Nursing has been awarded a $685,000 grant to support classroom education and innovative clinical instruction.
The gift from the L.K. Whittier Foundation will enable the school to update its nursing simulation skills lab with state-of-the-art equipment and purchase pediatric and Intensive Care Unit simulation equipment. The foundation has made two previous gifts to the School of Nursing.
“These upgrades will ensure our position as the flagship nursing program within the California State University system,” said Lorie Judson, director of the School of Nursing and co-principal investigator of the grant. “We’re grateful for L.K. Whittier’s philanthropic gifts.”
U.S. News & World Report 2016 “America’s Best Graduate Schools” edition ranked Cal State LA’s nursing master’s degree program among the top in the nation. Cal State LA is one of only two public universities in the Los Angeles area, and the only university in the CSU system, listed in the top 100 programs by the U.S. News & World Report.
