See the attached notification of available grant funding for the Delta region of Missouri.
In 2012, the Office for Victims of Crime and the National Institute of Justice awarded funds to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) to develop a national telemedicine center that provides 24/7 access to Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANESs) who will provide guidance and support for clinicians in remote sites conducting forensic evidence collection for sexual assault victims. MDPH has issues a Request for Response (RFR) for three sites serving priority populations (rural, tribal and corrections) to partner with the National TeleNursing Center. A fourth site, serving the military, will be a U.S Navy facility and selected in a separate process.
If you are interested in responding to this request, please read the RFR at www.comm-pass.com. Follow the instructions below to access the RFR and all associated forms and documents. Please note that this process will work much easier if you have the most recent version of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari. (more…)

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.
