Scholarships Available to Rural Nurses to Obtain Training to Support Missouri Farmers and Ranchers

Agriculture is a diverse industry and occurs in some of the more remote parts of the country. The risks and occupational exposures associated with farming and ranching are often not familiar to healthcare workers in rural communities. Nurses are the frontline of rural community healthcare which is why Farm Credit Southeast Missouri and five other Farm Credit Associations from AR, IL and MO are offering 10 scholarships to nurses to receive training through the AgriSafe Nurses program.
The program consists of 18 hours of distance learning utilizing lectures, interactive question and answer sessions and group discussions. Some of the topics covered included:
  • Integration of ag health into a medical practice.
  • Special populations (youth, older adult, veterans, immigrant and migrant workers)
  • Zoonotic diseases
  • Chemical/pesticide exposure
  • Personal protective equipment
  • And skin disorders, to name a few
Farm Credit Southeast Missouri is proud to provide one nurse in our service area a scholarship to complete the AgriSafe Nurse program. This scholarship is fully paid, there is no expense to the nurse or their employer.
We take pride in providing this resource to nurses who serve Missouri’s farmers and ranchers. Scholarship recipients will be selected by the Agrisafe Network. Anyone interested in obtaining this training should complete the Agrisafe Nurses Scholarship Application found at
