Jessup’s BSN Program Receives Significant Grant

California’s Department of Health Care Access and Information (HCAI) recently awarded Jessup University a generous grant of $630,000 for Jessup’s BSN four-year degree program, which launched in the spring semester of 2023, as part of HCAI’s Song-Brown Program Registered Nurse Education Program.

HCAI’s mission is to expand equitable access to quality, affordable health care for all Californians through resilient facilities, actionable information, and the health workforce each community needs. HCAI’s Song-Brown program aims to increase the number of students and residents receiving quality primary care education and training in areas of unmet need throughout California.

“The Song-Brown Nursing Grant enables Jessup to expand and equip our BSN facilities, add high-fidelity sim lab equipment, provide professional development opportunities, implement digital training protocols, and establish medical missions partners, as we strive to graduate exemplary nursing students who will significantly impact healthcare systems worldwide,” said Jessup’s Dean of the School of Natural, Applied and Health Sciences, Dr. George Stubblefield.

Jessup’s BSN program delivers excellent educational preparation that meets rigorous program assessment and evaluation standards. As a result, the program prepares graduates for the demanding nursing profession with significant emphasis on prevention, education, nutrition, active engagement with healthcare leaders, and innovative technology applications. The goal is to provide students with the knowledge to impact people of all diversities and environments.

Jessup’s BSN program is also helping to address the Registered Nurse Shortage Areas (RNSAs) within Placer County as it prepares transformational leaders who will provide significant healthcare contributions to our local, regional, and global communities. Jessup offers the only faith-based, four-year BSN program in the greater Sacramento area, creating a new option for nursing education to prospective students within surrounding communities.
