Effort to help boost nurse practitioners in rural Michigan

Effort to help boost nurse practitioners in rural Michigan

Grand Valley State University is working with two Michigan health care systems to graduate more students who will work as nurse practitioners in rural or underserved areas.

The effort is boosted by a four-year, $2.8 million federal Advanced Nursing Education Workforce Grant for the school’s Kirkhof College of Nursing. The grant funding is supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration.

Case Studies

I’m pleased because I don’t have to make a 4 ½-hour drive to get my infusion. It’s great that we can now have the therapy that I needed right here.


I’m very fortunate and so grateful for everything the center does for me. The wait is short and I’m in and out in no time. Without this local service, I couldn’t keep my job. I wouldn’t be able to take care of my family or enjoy my life.

CIS Rural Patient

They monitored me, they took care of me. The infection that was causing the pain began to go away. I can tell you now I’m able to stand on both legs. After the infusion therapy, I was able to resume the activity that I truly enjoy, playing the guitar and exploring the wonders of music.
