The 2013 NURSE Corps Scholarship Program (formerly known as the Nursing Scholarship Program) application cycle is now open. The deadline to apply is May 2, at 7:30 pm, ET. To learn more about program eligibility and requirements, visit: http://www.hrsa.gov/loanscholarships/scholarships/Nursing/guidance.pdf.
The Nursing Scholarship Program (NSP) and Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program (NELRP) have a new name and identity. These programs now fall under NURSE Corps: Caring for Communities in Need. Through the NURSE Corps Scholarship Program and the NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program, NURSE Corps is empowering and enabling nurses to follow their passion for helping and healing others. While the name may be new, these are still the same great programs which have supported a community of nurses who provide quality health care to underserved areas throughout the U.S. and its Territories since 2002.
The Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) is pleased to announce the release of the FY 2013 Rural Health Information Technology (HIT) Workforce Program (Announcement number: HRSA-13-251). The purpose of this one-time funding opportunity is to support formal rural health networks that focus on activities relating to the recruitment, education, training, and retention of HIT specialists. This program will provide support to rural health networks that can leverage and enhance existing HIT training materials to develop formal training programs, which will provide instructional opportunities to current health care staff, local displaced workers, rural residents, veterans, and other potential students. Funded projects will have rural health networks partner with an accredited rural or rural-serving educational institution, such as a community, technical, or vocational college. The educational institution must either have an established HIT curriculum or be in the process of developing one at the time of submission. They must also demonstrate how the curriculum aligns with the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) modules. These formal training programs will result in the development of a cadre of HIT workers who can help rural hospitals and clinics implement and maintain systems and meet EHR meaningful use standards.
