Grambling Eyes Rebuild for Nursing Program

By: Bonnie Bolden – The News-Star

Grambling State University’s undergraduate nursing program will have to be rebuilt from scratch, Janet Guyden, provost and vice president for academic affairs, said.

“For the last year, it’s been such an integral part of Grambling State University’s ethos, and it’s been such an important part of who we are as an institution … for those of us who work here every day, it’s probably one of the hardest blows we’ve ever taken,” Guyden said.

“We’ve got alum of that program working at the very highest levels of health care all over the world — military nurses, nurse practitioners, Ph.D.s in nursing, faculty in other schools. Our product is out there in ways that people locally don’t even realize, and for them this has been a hard hit because it’s the program that birthed them, and when you lose something like that, it takes a piece of your soul. It takes away a piece of your professional soul.”
