Impacting Models of Practice and Clinical Training for Registered Nurses and Students (IMPACT-RNS).
Goal: The purpose of this project is three-fold: 1) Educate BSN students and registered nurses (RNs) to practice to the full scope of the RN license and expand their scope of influence on the interprofessional community-based primary care team emphasizing their role in addressing the opioid epidemic; 2) Expand academic-practice partnerships with select healthcare organizations to provide longitudinal clinical training opportunities for senior-level BSN students in community-based primary care settings in rural and/or underserved areas; and 3) Collaborate with clinical practice partners to develop, implement, and sustain innovative strategies to fully utilize RNs in community-based primary care settings to increase access to quality care in rural and/or underserved areas.
