The University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing received $769,000 to enhance rural emergency and hospital care. Dr. Kathy Morris is assistant professor in the UNMC College of Nursing and is the project director the 3 year grant. She says they are launching a new certificate program that offers advance education and training for family nurse practitioners who work in rural and underserved areas.

 

Morris says this will help the family nurse practitioner who is currently in a rural area by obtaining additional skills to help them further meet the needs of their patients in critical access hospitals.

Morris says classes will be taught using internet distance technology and once a semester the students will come to the Med Center for further training.
