DURANT, Okla. – The Texoma Health Foundation recently presented a gift of $35,000 to assist in the continued funding of the East Central University at Southeastern Oklahoma State University nursing program.
Southeastern, in partnership with East Central, offers a baccalaureate degree in nursing (BSN) on the Durant campus. This degree plays an important role in producing quality nurses in the region. In light of the recent decline in state appropriations, this gift from the Texoma Health Foundation will serve area communities by helping to maintain this vital program.
