What is the Rural Primary Care Track?

The MSU College of Nursing was awarded a $2.8 million grant to enrich our classroom and clinical education with the primary care emphasis that is changing how healthcare is delivered in Montana. By pairing your classroom and clinical experiences to the transformation of the total healthcare environment that is underway, you will be ideally-prepared for a role in primary care when you receive your bachelor’s degree and enter the nursing workforce.

Participation benefits include:

  • Funded travel to rural care settings from any MSU nursing campus for selected clinical course-work in primary care
  • Working intensively with seasoned nurse preceptors
  • Become a Montana Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Scholar
