    Written by Whitten | Nursing program will double with nearly $9 million gift from Wellstar

    February 18, 2020

    A recent contribution to Kennesaw State University from Wellstar Health System is a game changer for both KSU and the state of Georgia. Georgia is suffering from a severe nursing shortage. KSU, home to one of the state’s premier nursing programs, does not have the capacity to serve all the exceptional students seeking placement in our highly competitive program. Annually, the university is only able to accept approximately 20 percent of KSU students seeking to study nursing. Thanks to an exciting and generous partnership with Wellstar Health System, KSU will have the resources available to make great strides towards simultaneously addressing our student’s needs and helping to tackle the state’s nursing shortage.
