We Choose NPs

National Nurse Practitioner (NP) Week

During the week of November 12th – 16th, Washburn School of Nursing will celebrate National Nurse Practitioner (NP) Week to honor the pivotal role NPs play in the future of health care. NPs are often primary care providers at the forefront of providing preventive care services in rural and underserved urban areas where primary care would otherwise be unavailable.

The NP profession is growing to meet the challenge of the nation's health care shortages, with more than 248,000 NPs currently licensed to practice in the United States and approximately 23,000 NP students entering the workforce every year.

The Washburn campus is home to more than 18 NPs. Meet the Washburn NPs and join us in thanking them for their service!

National Rural Health Day - November 15th

National Rural Health Day - November 15th

On November 15, 2018, Washburn School of Nursing will celebrate National Rural Health Day to honor those who work every day to help keep our community healthy.

One third of Kansas residents live in one of the eighty-nine (89) rural and frontier counties across the state (Kansas Department of Health, Rural Healthworks 2015) and access to quality primary care services for these residents is becoming increasingly more difficult.

The Washburn School of Nursing’s Workforce Education for Kansas Advanced Nurse Practitioners (WE-KAN) and Registered nurse Education for a Nurse-led Enhanced Workforce (RENEW) projects offer an innovative approach to workforce shortages in primary care and enhanced Doctor of Nurse Practitioner (DNP) and Registered Nurse (BSN) education.

Help us celebrate the Power of Rural!
