In August 2018, the Roseman University College of Nursing was awarded a grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) division of Nurse Education, Practice, Quality and Retention (NEPQR) to recruit and train undergraduate nursing students and current Registered Nurses to practice to the full scope of their license in community-based primary care settings. The Registered Nurse in Primary Care (RNPC) Training Grant seeks to:
- Achieve a sustainable primary care nursing workforce
- Even the distribution of the nursing workforce
- Improve access to care and population health outcomes
The purpose of this grant is to recruit and train nursing students and current RN’s to practice to the full scope of their license in community-based primary care teams. This will ultimately increase access to care and improving population health outcomes for rural and underserved populations with a focus on chronic disease prevention and control that includes mental health and substance use conditions.
To support this goal, Roseman’s RNPC training program is hosting a workshop entitled Identification of Addiction and Modalities of Treatment. The workshop will include information on substance abuse and effects, Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), clean needle exchange and suicide prevention training.
This project is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under grant UK1HP31706, “Nurse Education, Practice, Quality and Retention – Registered Nurses in Primary Care Program,” for $2,800,000.
