UNG's Family Nurse Practitioner program was developed as a "rural health" program and all clinical courses focus on rural primary care.

The University of North Georgia (UNG) was awarded a $5,000 scholarship grant from the CVS Health Foundation to assist graduate students in the Department of Nursing complete the Master of Science in Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program.

The grant will be used to award five $1,000 scholarships to rural FNP students with financial needs, including bilingual students serving in primary care clinics in the Appalachian region of Georgia.

"Many of our students struggle with having to work full-time and manage family commitments, both of which can be financially challenging with the additional costs of returning to school. This grant will offer much needed financial assistance by providing scholarships to dedicated nurse practitioner students that are striving, despite personal financial burdens, to improve health outcomes right here in our rural north Georgia communities," said Deb Dumphy, associate professor of nursing and graduate program coordinator at UNG.

The UNG FNP program was developed as a "rural health" program and all clinical courses focus on rural primary care. Many nursing students are currently serving in medically underserved north Georgia clinics.
