Nurse Anesthetist Traineeship Program (NAT)
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 is given to programs that provide Nurse Anesthetist Traineeships to students from disadvantaged backgrounds, including medically underserved areas and rural areas, who indicate an intention to practice in those areas upon completion of the Nurse Anesthesia Program.
Traineeship awards must not exceed $22,000 per trainee per year and are limited to the payment of full or partial tuition and fees, books, and reasonable living expenses.
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.
