College of Nursing awarded grant for nursing leadership in rural and underserved areas
Date:8/6/2010

The University of Colorado College of Nursing has been awarded a $753,817 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), to prepare advanced practice nurses with the expertise to provide leadership for high quality healthcare in rural and medically underserved urban areas.

Funding was provided in a competitively awarded grant to i-LEAD, Innovation in Leadership and Administration in Nursing and Healthcare Systems. Amy Barton, PhD, RN, professor and associate dean for Clinical and Community Affairs at the College of Nursing, and the college's newly appointed Mordecai Endowed Chair in Rural Health Nursing, is the project director.

"We are delighted to provide education in nursing leadership and healthcare systems in an innovative manner, reaching nurses across Colorado and the US, targeting both underserved and rural communities," said Barton. "This funding allows us to develop the program with our nationally and internationally renowned faculty and establish a strong infrastructure of student support that will help to financially sustain the program into the future."

This new, innovative, flexible master's program aligns with the College of Nursing's multiple entry, multiple exit philosophy. The program provides a 30 credit core master's degree in nursing leadership and healthcare systems, with numerous exit options, including: 1) Graduation with a MS degree in Nursing Leadership and Healthcare Systems 2) Completion of an additional 12 credits for specialization in Executive Leadership, 3) Completion of an additional 12 credits for specialization in Healthcare Informatics, and 4) Seamless progression into the PhD degree program with a health systems research focus. A second goal of the i-LEAD program is to facilitate students to complete a Post-Master's certificate in Executive Leadership.

In keeping with Healthy People 2010, i-LEAD will prepare culturally competent advanced
