Grants to USA and Territories nursing schools and health care facilities for programs to train students. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to a month to complete. Funding is intended to enhance education through the expansion of experiential learning opportunities for nurses. Funding is also intended to include the use of simulation-based technology, including equipment, to advance the health of patients, families, and communities in rural and medically underserved areas experiencing diseases and conditions that affect public health such as: high burden of stroke, heart disease, behavioral and mental health, maternal mortality, HIV/AIDS and or obesity.

This program intends to strengthen the capacity of undergraduate public health nursing students to address the complex health care needs of those living in rural and medically underserved areas as authorized by Public Health Service (PHS) Act sections 831 and 831A. The program seeks to accomplish this, through expanding the use of technology-based learning to meet the needs of rural and underserved populations.

Applicants are required to establish the following activities:

  • Develop and implement innovative, reliable evidence-based simulation training programs that include provisions for rural or medically underserved populations burdened by chronic illnesses such as stroke, heart disease, behavioral and mental health, maternal mortality, HIV/AIDS and obesity.

    • Use of collaborative, interprofessional team-based care
    • Integration of Public Health Nursing Competencies
  • Allocate a full-time academic nursing faculty/coordinator to support best practice simulation scenarios;
  • Establish or enhance strategic academic, practice, and community partnerships to inform simulation scenarios; and
