SALINA, Kan. (AP) - The state has awarded the Salina Area Technical College a $210,000 grant to help with start-up costs of the college’s new associate degree in nursing program.

The college announced the grant from the Kansas Department of Commerce on Friday. The Kansas Board of Regents and the Kansas State Board of Nursing approved the new program in September and is awaiting approval from the Higher Learning Commission. The first class in the two-year program is expected to begin in August.

The new grant made possible by a matching $170,900 grant from Salina Regional Health Center.

The Salina Journal reports Salina Tech began building its nursing programs in 2016, after Brown Mackie College closed. The school started a nine-month practical nursing class in August 2018.
