Scholarships for Mental Healthcare Professionals

New York state is facing a critical shortage of qualified child psychiatrists and mental health care workers.�� The state has children and adolescents who are in need of mental health care, but rural and urban areas are experiencing a shortage of available practitioners.�� To counteract this shortage, the nursing school at the University of Rochester is offering scholarships for candidates to continue their education in the field of mental health care.

One way to begin meeting the tremendous need for child mental health services is to encourage nurses who already live and work in these communities to return to school to become child/adolescent psychiatric nurse practitioners and pediatric nurse practitioners with specialization in pediatric behavioral mental health.

The University of Rochester School of Nursing, with support from the Health Resources and Services Administration ( HRSA ), is offering scholarships that will cover half of the tuition for qualified nurses who are admitted to the School's child /adolescent psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner programs by September 2009. Coursework is primarily online and, to the extent possible, the School contracts with clinical agencies and preceptors in students' home communities for practicum experiences. This allows nurses already living in rural and underserved areas of New York to complete their advanced nursing education while remaining in their home communities to practice following graduation.

Students need to start their coursework no later than January 2010 to receive this scholarship. They will also need to be employed by the New York State Office of Mental Health agencies or one of their licensed affiliates at the time of application.
