BYU College of Nursing receives funding for new admissions

The Brigham Young University College of Nursing recently received a $50,000 donation from Intermountain Health Care to help the college increase admissions for nursing students.

The combination of a growing number of highly qualified candidates and a nursing shortage led the college to implement a trial effort of increasing admissions by 30 percent during the past four semesters.

"We are grateful to receive this generous contribution," said Elaine Marshall, dean of the BYU College of Nursing. "IHC plays a very important role in helping to educate BYU nurses and we value their support."

BYU and IHC have enjoyed a collaborative relationship for many years and share mutual goals concerning health care needs in the community.

"We deeply appreciate our relationship with BYU and are pleased with their many efforts in providing a first-rate nursing college," said Gail McGuill, chief nurse executive for IHC's Utah County region. "We recruit very bright, motivated students from BYU's nursing program and hope this donation will help to further their mission of educating excellent nurses."

The donation is part of $255,000 IHC has given Utah schools this year to help prepare more nurses and other health care professionals.

400 million voting records show persistent gaps in voter turnout by race, age, and political affiliation

August 10, 2022
A new study from BYU and the University of Virginia analyzed 400 million voter records from elections in 2014 and 2016 and found that minority citizens, young people, and those who support the Democratic Party are much less likely to vote than whites, older citizens, and Republican Party supporters. Moreover, those in the former groups are also more likely to live in areas where their neighbors are less likely to vote.
