Under this section, HRSA makes awards to entities who train and support nurses characterized as ‘‘advanced education nurses.’’ In awarding such grants, funding preference is given to applicants with projects that will substantially benefit rural or underserved populations, or help meet public health nursing needs in state or local health departments; special consideration is given to an eligible entity that agrees to extend the award to train advanced education nurses who will practice in designated health professional shortage areas.

Additionally, collecting this data assists HRSA in carrying out the most impactful program and ensuring resources are used responsibly. More specifically, the changes include the following: • Form name change from ANEW to ANE Program Specific Form. • Additional instructions for applicants are provided in each funding opportunity. • Modifications to both Table #1 and Table #2: Æ Revision to instructions to incorporate elements for added programs.
