Prior to submitting the ICR to OMB, HRSA seeks comments from the public regarding the burden estimate below, or any other aspect of the ICR. DATES: Comments on this ICR should be received no later than January 9, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the information request collection title for reference. Information Collection Request Title: The Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) Program Specific Data Collection Forms. SUMMARY: OMB No. 0915–0375, Revision Abstract: The Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) Program is a new program that incorporates elements of the AENT and the Advanced Nursing Education Programs. The current OMB approved Program Specific Data Collection Forms for the PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 former AENT Program will be simplified and used for the ANEW program. HRSA provides advanced education nursing grants to educational institutions to increase the numbers of advanced education nurses through the ANEW Program. The ANEW Program is authorized by Title VIII, Section 811(a)(2) of the Public Health Service Act, (42 U.S.C. 296j(a)(2)), as amended by Section 5308 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, Public Law 111–148. This renewal with revision request includes the Project Abstract, Program Narrative, Attachments, and Tables. The proposed ANEW tables are very similar to the previous AENT tables and include information on program participants such as the projected number of enrollees/trainees receiving traineeship support, projected number of graduates receiving traineeship support for the previous fiscal year, the types of programs they are enrolling into and/or from which enrollees/trainees are graduating, and the distribution of primary care nurse practitioners, primary care clinical nurse specialists, and nurse-midwives who plan to practice in rural and underserved settings. To reduce the reporting burden for applicants, HRSA simplified the tables to focus on the types of providers and practice settings that are included in the statute to determine whether applicants qualify for the preference or special consideration in making awards for this program. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The Project Abstract is often distributed to provide information to the public and Congress. HRSA will use this information in determining the eligibility for the statutory funding preference and special consideration and to succinctly capture data for the number of projected students for subsequent years in the project period. Likely Respondents: Likely respondents are potential applicants for the ANEW program. Eligible applicants for the ANEW program include entities that provide registered nurses with primary care nurse practitioner (NP), primary care clinical nurse specialist (CNS), and nurse-midwife education. Such programs may include accredited schools of nursing, nursing centers, academic health centers, state or local governments, and other public or private nonprofit entities authorized by the Secretary of HHS to confer degrees to RNs for primary care NP, primary care CNS, or nurse-midwife education.

Eligible state government entities include the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau.

This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train Number of respondents Form name Number of responses per respondent personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

The scope of the form involves obtaining information from investigators that: (1) Would like to submit data about their study into the GDC, (2) are affiliated with studies that adhere to GDC data submission conditions. The benefits of the collection are that it provides the needed information for investigators to understand the types of studies and data that the GDC supports, and that it provides a standard mechanism for the GDC to assess incoming data submission requests.

is a new program that incorporates elements of the AENT and the 
Advanced Nursing Education Programs. The current OMB approved Program 
Specific Data Collection Forms for the former AENT Program will be 
simplified and used for the ANEW program.
    HRSA provides advanced education nursing grants to educational 
institutions to increase the numbers of advanced education nurses 
through the ANEW Program. The ANEW Program is authorized by Title VIII, 
Section 811(a)(2) of the Public Health Service Act, (42 U.S.C. 
296j(a)(2)), as amended by Section 5308 of the Patient Protection and

receiving traineeship support, projected number of graduates receiving 
traineeship support for the previous fiscal year, the types of programs 
they are enrolling into and/or from which enrollees/trainees are 
graduating, and the distribution of primary care nurse practitioners, 
primary care clinical nurse specialists, and nurse-midwives who plan to 
practice in rural and underserved settings. To reduce the reporting 
burden for applicants, HRSA simplified the tables to focus on the types 
of providers and practice settings that are included in the statute to 
determine whether applicants qualify for the preference or special 
consideration in making awards for this program.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The Project Abstract is 
often distributed to provide information to the public and Congress. 
HRSA will use this information in determining the eligibility for the 
statutory funding preference and special consideration and to 
succinctly capture data for the number of projected students for 
subsequent years in the project period.
    Likely Respondents: Likely respondents are potential applicants for 
the ANEW program. Eligible applicants for the ANEW program include 
entities that provide registered nurses with primary care nurse 
practitioner (NP), primary care clinical nurse specialist (CNS), and 
nurse-midwife education. Such programs may include accredited schools 
of nursing, nursing centers, academic health centers, state or local 
governments, and other public or private nonprofit entities authorized 
by the Secretary of HHS to confer degrees to RNs for primary care NP, 
primary care CNS, or nurse-midwife education. Federally recognized
