Advanced Nursing Education Workforce Grant Program
ANEW: The ANEW Program supports innovative academic-practice partnerships to prepare advanced practice registered nursing students to practice in rural and underserved settings through academic and clinical training. The partnerships support enhanced didactic and clinical training opportunities in primary care for nursing students (including longitudinal clinical immersive training experiences), training for clinical preceptors, traineeships, and support for post-graduate employment in primary care, with a particular focus on rural and underserved populations. ANE-SANE: The purpose of the ANE-SANE funding is to increase the number of Registered Nurses (RNs), Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs), and Forensic Nurses trained and certified to conduct sexual assault nurse examinations in communities on a local, regional and/or state level. Ideal applicants will have an infrastructure to recruit eligible Nurses, coordinate didactic and clinical training with identified partners, monitor and track clinical practice hours and certification completion, and have demonstrated strategies to retain SANEs in practice. The goal of this program is to train providers to conduct sexual assault forensic examinations that provide better physical and mental health care for survivors, better evidence collection, and lead to higher prosecution rates. ANE-NPR: The purpose of this program is to prepare new nurse practitioners (NPs) in primary care for practice in community-based settings through clinical and academic focused 12-month Nurse Practitioner Residency (NPR) programs, with a preference for those projects that benefit rural or underserved populations. The ANE-NPR Program Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) seeks to increase primary care providers in community-based settings. This program has been structured in a way so that training programs are encouraged to support the placement of participants in rural and underserved settings and also find ways to assist NPR completers to remain in these settings.
