Increasing the Psychiatric Mental Health Workforce in Eastern Oregon

Northeast Oregon Area Health Education Center (NEOAHEC) has been awarded a Healthy Oregon Workforce Training Opportunity (HOWTO) grant of nearly $1 million to increase the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) workforce in eastern Oregon.

The new HOWTO grant program, administered under the direction of the Oregon Health Policy Board in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), selected this project as one of its first awardees.

Based in Eastern Oregon, the OHSU PMHNP distance education program gives learners the flexibility to learn from home, and have clinical experiences in their communities. Again this year, significant scholarships will be available for tuition and other expenses.
