The MIRA Psychiatric Nurse-Practitioner Program: Providing Rural Health Care Education
Tuesday, January 1, 2002
The Medically Indigent Rural Area (MIRA) Psychiatric Nurse-Practitioner Program lets graduate nursing students in rural areas obtain supervised hours for licensure without relocating. Funded by the Health Resource Services Administration, the WSU College of Nursing's Internet protocol videoconference network operates through cooperative agreements with WSU's Cooperative Extension Services wide-area network and Inland Northwest Health Telehealth Services's 89 videoconference sites throughout the inland northwest. The program yielded a 900% increase in enrollment.
