Overview
This project is an online Psychiatric-Mental Health NP program designed to increase access to mental health care by increasing the number of primary mental health care providers, particularly from poor and disadvantaged backgrounds, in rural Alabama and Mississippi which are notably underserved.  A secondary goal is to develop a new NP program with a focus in Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing in the SON. The program aims to enroll 10 MSN students per year in this newly developed online program.  As the program involves distance learning, it is anticipated that the trainees will eventually practice in the rural communities where they currently work and reside.
