West Virginia University School of Nursing is using a $1.2 million federal grant to train advance practice nursing students.

The university says the three-year grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration will be used to implement the "Improving Nursing Scholarship, Practice, Innovation, Research and Education to Care for WV," or INSPIRE to Care for WV project.

The School of Nursing intends to collaborate with new and expanded health care partners in West Virginia to strengthen the education of family nurse practitioner students to care for state residents who are vulnerable or live in rural and underserved areas.
