What is RNPC?

Davenport University’s Registered Nurse in Primary Care (RNPC) grant enhances the nursing education of students in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Pre-licensure (BSN-PL) program. BSN-PL students accepted into the RNPC initiative receive education and training relevant to primary care and military veteran care competencies. Clinical and externship opportunities are offered in partnership with the Wyoming VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC). The focus of the Davenport RNPC grant is to build the workforce of primary care RNs by enhancing educational opportunities within the BSN-PL program through the inclusion of evidence-based standards, treatment guidelines, and best practices in ambulatory care settings.
