Advanced Nursing Education grants support projects that develop and test innovative academic-practice partnership models for clinical training and prepare primary care advanced practice registered nurses to provide safe, quality care within the complex practice environment of the evolving U.S. health care system.

The partnerships augment the the quality of clinical sites and preceptor training and equip students to practice upon graduation.


Accredited advanced practice registered nurse primary care programs (collegiate nursing schools or academic health centers) and clinical practice sites (State or local governments and other public or private nonprofit entities) are eligible to apply.

Advanced practice RN programs are nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, nurse anesthetist and certified nurse midwifery programs that prepare students to provide direct patient care.
