Primary Care Scholars Program Application

This program is for Nurse Practitioner students who plan to provide primary care in one of Alabama's 55 rural counties upon graduation. Students aspiring to practice in rural Alabama who have been accepted into the MSN program in one of our primary care nurse practitioner tracks are encouraged to apply. Students accepted into the Graduate Nursing Education Primary Care Scholars Program (GNEPCSP) proceed through the MSN program as a cohort. Primary Care Scholars will enroll in the same courses as their classmates and will receive mentoring, individualized case studies and content relative to rural health issues, preceptorships with selected rural health providers and additional opportunities for professional development.
