CSUB nursing department receives grant to create studies for use throughout nation


California State University, Bakersfield is pulling in some pretty big funding. A newly received grant for $40,000 will fund research that will be used across the nation.

The grant will allow the university to develop five case studies to be used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with supporting undergraduate nursing education.

The research will also focus on finding gaps in existing case studies.

CSUB's nursing department is one of only two universities in the nation to be asked to participate in the case study. The results from the research will be used to educate nursing students from around the United States.

Faculty and staff at CSUB have a lot to be happy about, after graduating their largest class in the university's history.

Dr. Heidi He spearheaded the program and is apart of the team what will be conducting the research.

"I feel honored and proud, and I personally think we are CSUB's best-kept secret," said He.

The study is under an aggressive timeline, with the final draft being due mid-August.

Faculty have high hopes for the team and feel their involvement will give CSUB more recognition.
