CSS President Barbara McDonald said that $2.79 million, the largest public grant in the college's history, was donated to the School of Nursing by the federal Health Resources and Services administration. It will fund the Advanced Nurse Eudcation (ANEW) project, which aims to improve healthcare in rural areas and strengthen St. Scholastica's partnership with Essentia Health.

This is in additon to $1.125 million, the largest private grant in the college's history, donated by the Manitou Fund of St. Paul. This will aid the college in making major renovations to the Nursing Department's learning spaces. Specifically, by creating two new simulation labs for acute care and ambulatory care to provide students with hands-on experience.

These two new facilities are expected to be completed by the spring semester of 2021.
