Missouri Center for Nursing receives grant

April 30th, 2019 by News Tribune staff in Local News

A Jefferson City-based nursing organization is one of 12 nationwide that is to receive grants of up to $25,000 for work that addresses the role of nursing in promoting health equity.

The Missouri Center for Nursing, which provides opportunities for collaboration among nursing and other health stakeholders through innovation, training and other programs, was named a recipient of the grant based on its strategies to build a culture of health.

The two-year grant is a matching grant from the Innovation Fund, offered through the American Association of Retired Persons and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The grant's goal is to assist the creation of reproducible strategies that sustain action coalitions, which drive change in local health care through nursing.
