The Louisiana State University (LSU) Health New Orleans School of Nursing was recently awarded a $1.4 million federal grant to help prepare primary care advanced practice registered nurses to practice in rural and underserved areas.

The grant was awarded by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) program and will be distributed over the course of two years. Funding is expected to target clinical training in the school’s primary care family and adult gerontology primary care nurse practitioner programs.

Twenty-five students will receive trainee awards ranging from $1,500 to $8,000 per academic year. Eligible students who are enrolled full-time will receive direct aid to help with tuition, books, and living expenses. The program will also help support academic-practice partnerships for students, including a partnership with University Medical Center New Orleans Ambulatory Clinics for students working in underserved areas of the state.
