The Song-Brown Healthcare Workforce Training Program provides grants to support registered nurse training programs in California.

Priority will be given to programs that have demonstrated success in the following areas:

  • Graduating individuals who practice in medically underserved areas
  • Enrolling members of underrepresented groups in medicine to the program
  • Locating the program's main training site in a medically underserved area
  • Operating a main training site at which the majority of the patients are Medi-Cal recipients

Eligible applicants are nurse education programs that are approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing (Associate Degree of Nursing; Bachelor of Science, Nursing; and Entry-Level Master's pre-licensure registered nursing programs).

Institutions with more than one level of nursing should submit only one application.
