Grambling State School of Nursing to host forum January 31 for prospective healthcare professionals

It’s a profession that has always been important and in demand. Nursing has become even more crucial and needed than ever before in recent years and Grambling State University (GSU) can provide the education and experience needed to become part of that demand. Those interested in the field have an opportunity to learn more about Grambling State’s School of Nursing during a forum to be held both in-person and virtually at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31 live from the Bettye Smith Nursing building auditorium on GSU’s campus.

“There has always been a shortage of nurses — it’s hard to imagine there ever being enough,” said Dr. Meg Brown, associate dean for the School of Nursing at GSU. “I’ve been in the profession a long time and there has always been a need for more nurses. There are so many paths a nursing degree can take a graduate at the baccalaureate level. And one of the best things about nursing is [that] it’s a profession that will never go away. Sometimes you see a profession kind of fade away as times change. That’s never going to happen in nursing. That need is always going to be there.”

During the forum, those interested in potentially becoming part of GSU’s School of Nursing will be able to take part in a question-and-answer session while also learning about curriculum requirements and TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) test dates and application deadlines.

Those unable to attend the forum in-person at GSU’s Nursing Auditorium can get the Zoom link by emailing
