Cooperative agreements to USA and territories health care facilities, accredited nursing schools, and partnerships of eligible facilities and schools to strengthen the nursing workforce. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to finalize.

The purpose of this program is to strengthen the nursing workforce through education and training to provide culturally aligned quality care in rural and underserved areas and training of diverse nursing students to address and manage Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) factors and improve health equity and health literacy of vulnerable populations in rural and underserved communities through nurse-led mobile health training sites. The NEPQR-MHTP will create and expand experiential learning opportunities for nursing students, including: the provision of high-quality culturally sensitive care, identify and understand SDOH in local communities, engagement in critical thinking, and clinical practice highlighting a collaborative team approach to care.

Through the expansion of experiential training opportunities in nurse-led community-based settings, the purpose of this mobile health training program is to increase and strengthen the diversity, education, and training of the nursing workforce to provide culturally aligned quality care in rural and underserved areas where there are health care disparities related to access and delivery of care. This program will provide enhanced education and training opportunities within collaborative, reciprocal partnerships, utilizing community-based, nurse-led mobile units. This program aims to strengthen the capacity of nursing students to address and manage Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) and improve health equity for vulnerable populations in rural and underserved areas. The NEPQR-MHTP aims to expand on the nursing education provided by emphasizing leadership and effective communication skills as well as innovative technological methods (i.e. telehealth) to deliver quality care in a rural or underserved environment.
