Community Based Primary Care Scholarship

The health of our communities is greatly impacted by successfully providing the right type of care in the community setting. The money awarded through the HRSA grant 18-012 RNPC Training Program grant was designed to provide financial assistance to colleges to help enhance community based primary care education in nursing programs. Methodist College is developing a community based primary care certificate that is embedded in the nursing curriculum. A scholarship is being offered to students who are interested in completing this certificate. All awards are pending the continuation of grant funding. 

Applicants for this scholarship must have:

  • At least a 2.5 GPA
  • Be eligible to enroll in, or are currently in, N232 Dimensions of Holistic Nursing for the spring 2020 semester 
  • Remain a full-time student in good academic standing throughout the duration of the award.

Recipients are required to participate in five (5) designated Learning Activities in the Spring and Fall semesters and two (2) in the Summer semesters, enroll in PH300 (Epidemiology), and N393 (Community-Based Primary Care) as part of the requirement to complete the certificate.
