Reaching Rural Alabama Nursing Support Fund

Click the Give Now button above to help the Capstone College of Nursing raise $10,000 for this year's passion project, the Reaching Rural Alabama Nursing Support Fund!

At CCN, we are working to prepare nurses that will be the positive change we need to see in rural healthcare. 

From combatting the substance and opioid use epidemic and increasing access to emergency services and telemedicine, to improving mental health primary care integration and increasing rural Alabama vaccination rates, CCN is positively impacting significant rural health issues. 

Your gift to the Reaching Rural Alabama Support Fund will help our students and faculty affect change through initiatives like community projects, student and faculty research and experiential learning opportunities. 

Using the Alabama Rural Health Association definition of rural, 55 of the 67 Alabama counties are classified as some degree of rural. These rural counties also are classified as medically underserved areas and designated as health provider shortage areas by the Health Resources and Services Administration. 

The Capstone College of Nursing is leading the way in Alabama's rural counties by advocating for policy change, offering services where there is a provider shortage and using creative research strategies to improve overall health outcomes in Alabama. It is our hope that empowering students with the ability to provide patient-centered, culturally-appropriate care to individuals who otherwise would not have access to health services will create a desire in the next generation of nurses to practice in underserved areas.
