BHECN Kearney


christine-chasek_2019_edited_cropped.jpgAs part of the Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska’s strategy to grow Nebraska’s rural behavioral health workforce, along with our offices at The University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, we also have a presence at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. The BHECN Kearney office is located in the new Health Sciences Education Complex, Room 252, on the UNK campus.

BHECN Kearney serves as one of our “rural hubs” for training and workforce development in the central parts of the state. A large portion of our in-person training is based out of the Kearney office.
