local students selected for rural health opportunities program | Education


Wayne State College announced that 46 students have been chosen for the highly selective Rural Health Opportunities Program (RHOP) for Fall 2022. Established in 1989 and successfully launching health care careers ever since, RHOP is a unique cooperative program between Wayne State and the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) to meet the health care needs of rural communities, which make up the majority of Nebraska.

Students selected for the program come from rural Nebraska, know the unique needs of their community, and are dedicated and passionate about their home state and its rural healthcare needs. RHOP represents this commitment and prepares students to return to rural Nebraska and care for its citizens.

RHOP benefits include a full scholarship to Wayne State and guaranteed admission to UNMC. RHOP participants continue their studies at WSC and UNMC, with the time spent at each institution determined by the program in which they are enrolled. Students applying to the program must be a rural Nebraska resident.
