The Nurse Education, Practice, Quality and Retention-Mobile Health Training Program (NEPQR-MHTP) aims to strengthen the capacity of nursing students to address and manage Social Determinants of Health and improve health equity for vulnerable populations in rural and underserved areas. The NEPQR-MHTP aims to expand on the nursing education provided by emphasizing leadership and effective communication skills as well as innovative technological methods (i.e. telehealth) to deliver quality care in a rural or underserved environment. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) released this new Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) announcement to increase and strengthen the diversity, education, and training of the nursing workforce to provide culturally aligned quality care in rural and underserved areas where there are health care disparities related to access and delivery of care. This program will provide enhanced education and training opportunities within collaborative, reciprocal partnerships, utilizing community-based, nurse-led mobile units.
HRSA anticipates awarding approximately $35 million to 35 award recipients.
