Supporting students pursuing advanced practice to serve primary care needs in the United States
Dr. Jessica Sullivan has received a grant of $2,800,000 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to support training of nurse practitioners.
The grant, part of HRSA's Bureau of Health Workforce, supports the preparation of primary care advanced practice nurses to practice in rural and under-served settings following graduation. The funds will be used for graduate students in the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Sequence at the College.
The FNP Sequence prepares students to provide primary care for patients across their lifespan. Dr. Jessica Sullivan is leader of the FNP Sequence and project director for the grant.
