Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW)
The purpose of the Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) Program is to increase the number of primary care nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, and certified nurse midwives trained and prepared to provide primary care services, mental health and substance use disorder care, and/or maternal health care. Grants will support the training and graduation of advanced practice registered nursing (APRN) students/trainees in these disciplines. Awardees will provide tuition and other eligible supports to trainees, build academic-clinical partnerships to facilitate clinical training, and continue to develop and sustain clinical faculty and preceptors as needed. Applicants are strongly encouraged to recruit students/trainees and faculty from diverse populations. Funding preference will be given to eligible entities that train APRNs students to practice in underserved and rural communities or state and local health departments.
Eligible applicants include accredited schools of nursing, nursing centers, academic health centers, state, or local governments, and other public or private nonprofit entities determined appropriate by the Secretary, such as HRSA-supported health centers or Rural Health Clinics. Eligible applicants located in the 50 states of the U.S., the District of Columbia, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau, may apply for these funds. Domestic community-based organizations, tribes and tribal organizations are also eligible to apply, if otherwise eligible.
