<b>Advanced Nursing Education Program</b>
Advanced Nursing Education Program

The Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) has announced its Advanced Nursing Education (ANE) Program opportunity. The FY 2016 program will only support applicants that were not funded under the FY 2015 ANE announcement. This year’s ANE applicants are asked to propose projects that will implement creative academic-practice partnerships within advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) primary care programs. Specifically, the program will support partnerships formed between academic institutions and primary care practice sites that address the unique needs of rural and underserved populations.  Proposed projects require a definitive, measurable plan to facilitate the meaningful exchange of information between nursing schools and primary care practice sites that serve underserved and rural populations. The intent is for this exchange of information to highlight any gaps in student preparation and preceptor knowledge and skills, ultimately leading to recommendations to resolve such gaps. HRSA anticipates awarding 17 grants of up to $700,000 per year for three years. Applications are due January 15, 2016.
