Peterson receives grant for nurse practitioner students at FHSU

Fort Hays State University's Jane Peterson, assistant professor of nursing, recently received a $35,000 continuation grant from the Hansen Foundation to provide scholarships for family nurse practitioner students.

Peterson wrote the grant to obtain scholarship money for nurse practitioner students to attend FHSU. The students who receive the grant scholarships must sign an agreement that they will work in a rural or underserved area for one year after their graduation.

"This is a great way to help students with the cost of college and at the same time obtain health care providers for rural or underserved areas," said Peterson.
