Undergraduate Primary Care and Rural Education Project (UPCARE)

The UPCARE Project addresses the need to support and improve community-based preparedness of the BSN workforce in rural Page County, Virginia. This will be accomplished by increasing the BSN-prepared workforce employed in primary health care; establishing a liaison-led, preceptor-based program using an interprofessional approach as a vehicle for project interventions; and developing and implementing interventions focusing on mental health/substance abuse and chronic disease prevention/control in a rural, underserved primary care environment. ​
