Program Description:

The ANE program supports the enhancement of advanced nursing education and practice. Funded projects will implement creative academic-practice partnerships within advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) primary care programs. Partnerships between academic institutions and rural and/or underserved primary care practice sites will promote APRN students’ readiness to practice upon graduation by improving training and competencies for both students and preceptors.

Working collectively, these partnerships will

  • Identify the needs of the community and the clinical workforce;
  • Enhance curriculum, preceptor recruitment, training and evaluation; and
  • Shape the experiential training of advance practice nursing students to prepare them to provide care for rural and underserved populations.

Additional Eligibility

Eligible applicants include schools of nursing, nursing centers, academic health centers, state or local governments and other public or private nonprofit entities.
