USC is accomplishing this by training psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner students to deliver mental health care to underserved South Carolina residents in rural areas of the state. The program’s most recent grant, TeleCon, is a $400,000 Duke Endowment education training grant awarded to principle investigator Tena Hunt McKinney, PhD, APRN, PMHNP-BC.
