The McAllister & Quinn Health team was instrumental in helping a medical center client obtain $447,375 from a federal grant to Enhance Training for Health Professionals. The Equipment to Enhance Training for Health Professionals grant supports the purchase of equipment for projects that are designed to strengthen the nursing workforce. This award was made in conjunction with the Nurse Education, Practice, Quality and Retention (NEPQR) program, which addresses the nursing shortage by supporting initiatives designed to strengthen the nursing workforce and improve patient care. The NEPQR program aims to expand the nursing pipeline by promoting career mobility, preparing more baccalaureate nurses, improving nurse retention, and improving continuing education opportunities for nurses. Eligible applicants are accredited schools of nursing, health care facilities, or a partnership of such a school and facility.
