The Nurse Anesthetist Traineeship Program (NAT) provides funding to support accredited institutions that educate registered nurses to become nurse anesthetists. Institutions, in turn, disburse funds to students in the form of traineeship support. Preference will be given to applicants with projects that will substantially benefit rural or underserved populations, or help meet public health nursing needs in state or local health departments.


Eligible applicants are schools of nursing, nursing centers, academic health centers, state or local governments, and other public or private nonprofit entities that provide registered nurses with full-time anesthetist education and are accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs.
