Program Description:

This announcement solicits applications for the Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) Program.  The purpose of the AENT program is to increase the number of primary care Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) trained in rural and/or underserved communities to better prepare graduates to practice in these communities.  The AENT grant provides traineeships to nurses who are pursuing advanced degrees as primary care nurse practitioners (NP) or nurse-midwives.

Additional Eligibility

Eligible applicants are education programs that provide registered nurses with nurse practitioner and nurse-midwife education.  Such programs may include schools of nursing, nursing centers, academic health centers, State or local governments, and other public or private nonprofit entities authorized by the Secretary to confer degrees to registered nurses for nurse practitioner nurse-midwife education.  Federally recognized Indian Tribal Government and Native American Organizations may apply if they are otherwise eligible. Foreign entities are not eligible for HRSA awards, unless the authorizing legislation specifically authorizes awards to foreign entities or the award is for research.  This exception does not extend to research training awards or construction of research facilities.
