There are many ways to get involved with Frontier Nursing University. Here are some of the ways you can give back and be a part of our mission to care for rural and underserved populations.

BECOME A PRECEPTOR
If you are Certified Nurse-Midwife, Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, Certified Women’s Health Care Nurse Practitioner or a Certified Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, there is no better way to give back to FNU than by becoming a clinical preceptor. Our distance education model thrives because of talented clinical preceptors which is why we ensure that every preceptor is supported with educational resources to help in their role as a clinical educator. We also offer an honorarium for precepting after the student finishes his/her clinical practicum. Are you interested in becoming a preceptor? Let us know by clicking on the link below and filling out a preceptor information request form. For more information about becoming a preceptor, click the button below.
SUPPORT DIVERSITY IMPACT
The Diversity Impact Program is designed to assist in promoting an inclusive learning and workforce environment at FNU, with a goal to increase diversity in the nursing and midwifery professions by recruiting and retaining underrepresented students and employees. The Diversity Impact Program is open to all students wanting to enhance and highlight cultural awareness trends within the field of healthcare.

APPLY TO BE A COURIER
In 1928, FNU founder Mary Breckinridge established the Courier Program, recruiting young people to work in the Kentucky Mountains and learn about service to humanity. Couriers escorted guests safely through remote terrain, delivered medical supplies to remote outpost clinics, and helped nurse-midwives during home visits and births. Since that time, FNU has benefited greatly from more than 1,600 couriers. Today, the Courier Program is an eight-week, rural and public health, service-learning program with a rich and adventuresome history that targets college students with interest in public health, health care or a related field.

The FNU community is comprised of men and women from all walks of life with one common passion: improving the primary care of women and families. Read the stories of the FNU alumni, students, preceptors, staff, faculty and couriers that are a part of this greater mission of serving the underserved in our blog or in our FNU publications.
