$700K Grant Will Aid Rural Health Care in Missouri

The Health Resources and Services Administration has awarded the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Nursing and Health Studies a two-year $700,000 grant to train 20 advanced practice registered nursing instructors and 20 students in Missouri rural health clinics.

In the state, 37 percent of the population lives in rural areas where there is a drastic shortage of healthcare providers, said Jane Peterson, an adjunct nursing instructor and one of the principal investigators on the grant along with Margaret Brommelsiek, an associate research professor.

This grant will increase the number of nurse practitioners who have the specific knowledge and skills needed to meet the diverse and multifaceted health needs of rural Missourians.

“Ultimately, the residents of Missouri will experience greater access to primary care through the pioneering efforts of the leaders of this grant who are demonstrating their foresight in addressing the primary-care shortage in our rural areas,” said Ann Cary, dean of the School of Nursing and Health Studies.

The project will extend an ongoing relationship with UMKC and Saint Luke’s Health System by expanding its existing academic-practice partnership to three rural primary care clinics located in three underserved Missouri counties: Wright Memorial Physicians’ Group in Trenton; Hedrick Family Practice in Chillicothe; and Saint Luke’s Medical Group in Clinton.
