The Nurse Education, Practice, Quality and Retention - Clinical Faculty and Preceptor Academies (NEPQR-CFPA) Program provides funding to prepare nurses to serve as nursing clinical faculty and preceptors to newly hired or transitioning licensed nurses in a variety of care settings in rural and underserved areas.

Funding will support the creation of academies, consisting of academic-clinical-community partnerships, that develop and implement formal nurse education training curriculum used to train clinical nursing faculty and preceptors. The overall objective is to increase the nursing workforce by producing skilled, qualified clinical nursing faculty and preceptors to address health equity, increase access to care, and increase capacity of the nursing workforce.


Eligible applicants include accredited schools of nursing; healthcare facilities, including Federally Qualified Health Centers; and nurse-managed health clinics, or partnerships of schools and facilities.
