HRSA Grants Support Public Health Nursing Field Experiences
HHS' Health Resources and Services Administration has announced grants totaling $249,848 to 10 schools of nursing to strengthen the field experience component of public health nursing baccalaureate programs.
The awards will provide seed money to plan, implement and evaluate public health nursing field experiences, including the preparation of faculty and health department staff. Nursing students will learn about core functions of public health, essential public health services, the missions of state and local health departments, and how public health practitioners work together to protect the public's health.
