Advanced Nursing Education Workforce Grant

ANEW nursing students in the telehealth practice center at UNH

UNH has received an Advanced Education Nursing Workforce (ANEW) grant to:

  • Address behavioral health issues and the opioid crises, and

  • Address the shortage of providers to care for underserved and rural populations in New Hampshire

The grant offers funding for family nurse practitioner students in the last 12 months of their program who live in or complete at least 6 months (2 semesters) in a rural or underserved area during their clinical practicums and then agree to practice in a rural or underserved area after graduation. The awards vary from $5,500 to $11,000 per semester depending on the student’s enrollment status.

Preceptors are invited to participate in UNH Project ECHO® sessions, a virtual case-based all-teach, all-learn model. Preceptors can receive funds to attend additional conferences and trainings.
