The Guam/Micronesia AHEC grantee is the University of Guam School of Nursing, whose focus is health career training and development, as well as improving the health careers pipeline in the region. The activities that will be carried out through this initiative will serve as building blocks in a more comprehensive strategic effort to strengthen nursing education, and, thus the nursing workforce in the USAPI jurisdictions.
