Grant from HMSA Foundation leverages large national grant
HONOLULU – University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Nursing has received two grants totaling $729,000 to support students in the Master’s Entry Program in Nursing (MEPN). Launched in 2008, the MEPN Program is an accelerated entry program leading to a Master’s of Science in Nursing, the only program of its kind in Hawai‘i. It is designed for students who have a baccalaureate or higher degree in a field other than nursing and who have not previously attended a registered nurse educational program. The purpose of this alternative entry program is to equip students with entry-level professional nurse competencies as a foundation for advanced practice roles. The program consists of an intensive pre-licensure year transitioning into one of several specialty nursing pathways.
