The Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) Program provides funding to support innovative academic-practice partnerships to prepare primary care advanced practice registered nursing students to practice in rural and underserved settings through academic and clinical training.

  • Primary care nurse practitioner (NP)
