Coming Soon: Available Funding for Enhancing The Nurse Education, Practice, Quality and Retention – Workforce Expansion Program

HRSA’s Bureau of Health Workforce has dedicated $4.75 million to this program to increase the nursing workforce in rural (non-metro) and underserved areas to address the critical shortage of nurses, specifically in acute and long-term care settings. Eligible applicants include: public and private institutions of higher education; accredited schools of nursing; health care facilities; entities that confer associate’s degrees in nursing, such as community colleges; and partnerships between training and health care facilities.   This is a forecasted opportunity and may change when the application opens.
