This announcement solicits applications for the Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) Program. Program Purpose 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. 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.
For profit entities are not eligible under this FOA.
The eligible state government entities include the 50 states, and the District of Columbia, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau.
Foreign entities are not eligible for these awards, as the authorizing legislation does not specifically authorize such.
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. 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.
