The purpose of the NAT Program is to increase access to nurse anesthetist care for underserved populations. NAT grants provide funding for traineeships for licensed registered nurses enrolled as full-time students beyond the twelfth month of study in a master’s or doctoral nurse anesthesia program. Traineeships will pay all or part of the costs of the tuition, books, and fees, and the reasonable living expenses of the individual during the period for which the traineeship is provided.
Eligible applicants are education programs in accredited schools of nursing, academic health centers, and other private or public entities that provide registered nurses with full-time nurse anesthetist education and are accredited, or have initial accreditation, by the accrediting agency recognized by the Department of Education.
NAT funds are awarded to institutions.
