NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The School of Nursing at Loyola University of New Orleans has received a two-year, $700,000 federal grant from the Health Research and Services Administration.

The university said Tuesday that the money is to support doctoral students pursuing the credential of "Advanced Practice Registered Nurse" in primary care.

The award will pay for tuition, fees, stipends and books for primary care students who commit to work in health professions in underserved communities and rural areas.
