The Advanced Nursing Education Nurse Practitioner Residency and Fellowship (ANE-NPRF) Program provides funding to support transition to practice through the establishment, expansion and/or enhancement of existing community-based nurse practitioner (NP) residency and fellowship training programs that are accredited or in the accreditation process. The program also focuses on the integration of behavioral health and/or maternal health into primary care. Awardees must train postgraduate APRNs who will serve in primary care settings with a focus on improving access to quality healthcare for rural, urban, and tribal underserved populations.

Program objectives:

  • Support new primary care providers through the establishment, expansion, or enhancement of NP residency programs in community-based settings
  • Strengthen the clinical competency and readiness for practice of new primary care NPs through didactic and clinical training that equips participants with the skills and knowledge to provide care for the complex co-morbidities and multi-level chronic health and social needs of communities
  • Increase access to quality primary care providers through the placement of residency completers in rural, urban, and tribal underserved community-based settings
  • Expand academic practice partnerships to provide learning opportunities which integrate primary care, behavioral health and maternal health domains of practice. These partnerships should promote health equity, improve diversity of the workforce to address the needs of the populations they serve, and address workforce wellness and resiliency.

Eligible applicants include:

  • Accredited schools of nursing
  • Nursing centers (nurse managed health clinics/centers)
  • Academic health centers
  • State and local governments
  • Other nonprofit private or public entities determined appropriate by the HHS Secretary, such as:
