ARPA Grant

The UNMC College of Nursing has been awarded an American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) grant that will provide close to $500 thousand over the next three years.

The project, an “Immersive Interprofessional Integrated Care Training Grant,” will enabling the expansion of the current student health primary care clinic at the University of Nebraska Kearney Student Health Center to include a primary interprofessional integrated care training hub for family nurse practitioners, psychiatric advanced practice providers (APRNs and PAs), primary care, internal medicine and psychiatric medical residents, and behavioral health providers. This interprofessional training hub will create opportunities to facilitate workforce development across the state in all of the essential integrated roles while improving access to metal health care for Nebraska students through the implementation and delivery of Integrated Care with a team of experts.

The grant will facilitate two tracks of trainees. The first track will include interprofessionals who are seeking to train in integrated care and would include graduate and postgraduate family nurse practitioners, graduate and post graduate PAs, medical residents and students, along with behavioral health providers. The second track of the proposed trainees are the post-graduate psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners.
