The Invest in Nursing grant has had great success over the past three years in the partnership between UNC Chapel Hill School of Nursing and Piedmont Health Services, Inc., with three cohorts of Student Scholars from UNC Chapel Hill, and with three cohorts of Faculty Fellows from across the State of North Carolina. This program is a time-limited grant funded opportunity, provided by the Health Resources and Services Administration, and will no longer continue programming in this current iteration after the 2021-2022 cohort year. It is our hope that other educational entities will use Invest in Nursing as a blueprint for implementing similar programming. Reach Out
The UNC Chapel Hill School of Nursing & Piedmont Health are excited to introduce our third cohort of Student Scholars. All seven students are seniors at UNC Chapel Hill and enrolled in the BSN program in the School of Nursing. The Scholars will be completing clinical rotations in the Piedmont Health community health centers and Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) from Summer 2021-Spring 2022. We have also developed a new partnership for student clinical experience with Alliance Medical Ministry in Raleigh, NC.
