GRAMBLING (AP) — Grambling State University officials will meet with the Louisiana State Board of Nursing next month to learn the fate of the university’s undergraduate nursing program.
For the past three years Grambling’s undergraduate nursing program has been on the board’s “conditional approval” list because it has not maintained an 80 percent passing rate by students taking the NCLEX exam, which is required to get a nursing license.
