$1.9M grant to enhance Fisher's Wegmans School of Nursing

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - The St. John Fisher College Wegmans School of Nursing will enhance its existing programs for mental health counselors and psychiatric nurse practitioners.

A $1.9 million grant will create training opportunities with an emphasis upon strategies for delivering integrated behavioral and physical health care, especially to under-served and vulnerable populations.

The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHWET) grant will provide stipends for a select group of students in the School’s Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and Mental Health Counseling graduate programs who have demonstrated an interest in providing integrated care.  

Students in the training program will gain access to workshops focused on integrated practices, role play sessions with standardized patients, an interdisciplinary approach to curriculum, and internship and field work with agencies that provide, or have the potential to provide, integrated care.
