Grant Opportunity FW: Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) Program

October 25, 2016

This FY 2017 ANEW Program FOA seeks to expand upon the efforts that began in FY 2015 under the Advanced Nursing Education (ANE) Program to increase academic-practice partnerships around the country.

Apply for this Grant on

The ANEW Program supports innovative academic-practice partnerships to prepare primary care advanced practice registered nursing students to practice in rural and underserved settings through academic and clinical training. Closing date for applications is January 25, 2017.

The partnerships support traineeships as well as infrastructure funds to schools of nursing and their practice partners who deliver longitudinal primary care clinical training experiences with rural and/or underserved populations for selected advanced nursing education students in primary care nurse practitioner (NP), primary care clinical nurse specialist (CNS), and/or nurse-midwife (NMW) programs, and facilitate program graduates’ employment in those settings.

Eligible applicants include entities that provide registered nurses (RN) with training that leads to master’s and/or doctoral degrees that prepare nurses to serve as primary care nurse practitioners, primary care clinical nurse specialists, and nurse-midwives.

Applicants may include accredited schools of nursing, nursing centers, academic health centers, state or local governments, and other public or private nonprofit entities authorized by the Secretary of HHS that confer degrees to RNs for primary care NP, primary care CNS, or nurse-midwife education. Federally recognized Indian Tribal Government and Native American Organizations as well as faith-based or community-based organizations may apply if they are otherwise eligible.

Current ANE awardees from FY 2015 and FY 2016 are eligible to apply for the ANEW Program funding opportunity, but their applications must include a project different from their currently funded ANE project.

For profit entities are not eligible under this FOA.
