About The Project

The Recruitment, Education, and Employment of Nurse Practitioners Project (REEP) aims to provide an evidence-based curriculum including academic and practicum experiences focused on preparing nurse practitioners who can be entrusted to deliver evidence-based, culturally competent, skilled primary care for underserved, disadvantaged, racial, and ethnic minority groups in our community. The overarching goal of this project is employment of Nurse Practitioners ready and willing to care for underserved populations. To achieve this goal, we will establish 3 new academic-practice partnerships in Broward County, Florida with agencies providing primary care to underserved populations.  With these new partners, we will co-create culturally and linguistically appropriate learning experiences for BSN to DNP students in primary care settings with clients from disadvantaged, underserved, racial and minority groups. The major goals of the REEP project include:

Goal One: Recruit, educate, and mentor new diverse nurse practitioner primary care providers with financial support. Goal Two: Establish innovative educational opportunities via new academic/practice partnerships with community agencies who share a mission of delivering high quality and accessible health care to underserved, disadvantaged, and geographically isolated clients. Goal Three: Collaborate with practice partners to provide clinical immersion opportunities for DNP students to enhance their knowledge, skill, and ability (KSA) to care for persons of underserved/rural populations. Goal Four: Team with practice partners, the University, and community employment agencies to develop and implement strategies for connecting program graduates to primary care employment with rural and/or underserved populations. Implementation of the REEP model will involve critical linkages between academe and practice and will be operationalized through the key personnel: Project Director, Project Coordinator, Practice Liaisons (PL) and clinical preceptors. Clinical immersion will occur over 5 semesters of supervised practicum experiences providing care for underserved populations
