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.
Increase the number of nurse practitioners (NPs), clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) and certified nurse midwives (CNMs) trained to serve rural, urban, and tribal underserved populations.
Increase the diversity of the nursing workforce to better address the needs of the populations they serve by recruiting and supporting students and faculty, including those from diverse populations such as students and faculty from disadvantaged backgrounds and underrepresented minorities in the nursing profession.
Build/expand academic-clinical partnerships to create experiential learning opportunities that prepares trainees to efficiently address health equity and Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) for rural, urban, and tribal underserved populations.
