ORGS is on Blackboard!

Grant-writing can be an overwhelming process. However, with the right tools, careful planning, and a little teamwork, it can be easier than you think.

The ORGS has placed a myriad of helpful resources on our Blackboard site. All full-time Nursing and Health Professions faculty have been enrolled, meaning direct access to ORGS services once logged into Blackboard (click on the "Communites" or "My Organizations" tab). If you are having problems finding the ORGS Community on Blackboard or would like to be enrolled in the ORGS Blackboard community, please contact us.
