The College of St. Scholastica has been awarded a $1.4 million, two-year grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to fund through the Rural Academic Practice Partnership (RAPP) for Northeastern Minnesota. It’s one of 50 grants HRSA planned to award through the Advanced Nursing Education Workforce initiative, St. Scholastica said in a Friday announcement.

“RAPP is the culmination of ongoing collaboration between St. Scholastica and Essentia Health and will improve the region’s health and well-being. Meeting the healthcare needs in rural and under-served areas requires innovative responses. That is what the RAPP initiative epitomizes and it is an excellent fit with our mission,” said College of St. Scholastica President Dr. Colette Geary.
