Welcome to CAPP & REEP WEBSITE

Our project, Caring-based Academic Practice Partnerships (CAPP) to Enhance Nurse Practitioner Readiness & Willingness-to-Practice in Rural and Underserved Communities is inspired by the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing's long-standing commitment to a caring-based framework for nursing education and practice and the college's history of service to the underserved. The CAPP Model has the ultimate aim of creating healthier communities in rural and underserved areas through the education and clinical training of a primary care FNP/AGNP workforce that will be practice ready and willing to serve rural and underserved communities upon program completion.

We will create 2 new, and enhance 2 existing, academic-practice partnerships in a re-designed model of clinical education and training called Caring-based Academic Practice Partnerships, referred to as the CAPP Model, committed to serving rural and underserved communities.
