HRSA Announces $15 Million to Expand and Support the Nursing Workforce

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has announced the availability of nearly $15 million to grow the nursing workforce, improve access to nursing education and advance health equity. The funding includes the Clinical Faculty and Preceptor Academies Program, which is $10 million for a new initiative to invest in the nursing preceptor workforce in order to help unclog this challenge in the nurse training pipeline. A second funding initiative, the Registered Nurse Training Program, will invest indirectly in increasing the number of nursing students trained in acute care settings, with a specific focus on training in addressing social determinants of health in order to advance health equity in underserved areas.
