Fairfield (Conn.) University's school of nursing received a $2.64 million federal grant to establish a telehealth curriculum, according to Daily Voice Plus.

The four-year grant is from HHS' Advanced Nursing Education Workforce program and will support the addition of evidence-based telehealth studies as part of the university's coursework. The funding will also help grow Fairfield University's nurse practitioner program.

"[We] are thrilled that Fairfield University and the Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies have been selected to receive the latest of these valuable training grants that allow us to offer the highest quality programs for our family nurse practitioner, psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner and nurse midwifery students," said Joyce Shea, Fairfield University associate dean for graduate studies, according to the report.
