Project Details


The purpose of this project is to improve access to high quality primary health care by 1) increasing the number of primary care NP students enrolled full or part time in our nurse practitioner programs through increased financial support, and 2) attracting and supporting minority and underrepresented students in our primary care nurse practitioner programs. Arizona State University College of Nursing and Health Innovation (CONHI) is requesting traineeship funding to support advanced education students currently enrolled in the BSN to DNP degree and post-masters certificate as a primary care NP with a total enrollment of 170 with projected enrollment in 2012 2013 of 240. Current Specialty concentrations for DNP primary care are (1) Adult/Geriatric Nurse Practitioner, (2) Family Psych/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, (3) Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, (4) Family Nurse Practitioner, and (5) Womens Health Nurse Practitioner. The College of Nursing and Health Innovation is accredited by CCNE through June 30, 2014 and the DNP Program received accreditation on October 4, 2010 through June 30, 2016. The College of Nursing is one of Arizona's largest suppliers of nurses with Bachelor of Science and Advanced Practice Degrees, and is the only program in Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program and the Adult/Geriatric NP program. In the last 2 years we have increased the percentage of full time students by 20%, and have secured additional scholarship funds. However, over 50% of students admitted qualify for financial need and additional funding is needed to support these students. In fall 2011, 24% of graduate students backgrounds; by comparison, graduate student minority representation program course work is offered in hybrid distance education format in rural and underserved areas; currently 95% of students are in state and Students in the DNP programs have a curriculum with a major focus on Evidenced strengthened through collaboration and faculty teaching from the colleges of Evidence-Based Practice (CAEP). The CAEP leadership team is experts in EBP who facilitate the integration of internal evidence (i.e., evidence (i.e., research) and practice across multiple settings to improve system outcomes. The CONHI numbers of faculty, students and primary care advanced practice nurses providers in a rapidly changing population. The CONHI programs respond well as the goals of Healthy People 2020, the National Goals of the Bureau of Institute of Medicine. DRA
