River Success and Visionary Project (RSVP) has made its home at River University. RSVP was officially launched in July 2015 with the federals from a $930K Nursing Workforce Diversity Grant awarded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). ” The grant focuses on supporting students from ethnic and racial minority groups, as well as students who are the first in their families to attend college or who qualify for a needs-based Pell grant; these students are underrepresented among registered nurses. The goal is to increase the graduation rate for these students and to build a nursing workforce that reflects the growing diversity in U.S. communities.”
