(This amendment requests funds to expand the UVA Wise Nursing Program and provide expedited access to additional highly skilled health care providers. UVA Wise is proposing to partner with the University of Virginia’s College of Nursing to bring their Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program to Wise. By delivering this program jointly it will expedite quicker program implementation, and bring a nationally renowned program in a “hands-on” rural setting at a less expensive cost than developing this needed program independently.)
