Western Kentucky University (WKU) School of Nursing in the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) is pleased to announce that WKU was recently awarded $272,574 for the Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) for 2016-2017 academic year. Graduate nursing students at WKU who are preparing to become Family Nurse Practitioners or Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioners will benefit through traineeships that fund tuition, fees, and stipends. Dr. Eve Main, Program Director, said “traineeship funds are vital to our ability to recruit and train nurse practitioners for underserved areas of our region.” This award will impact regional, state and national rural and/or medically underserved areas serviced by WKU School of Nursing students receiving these grant monies. This is the 19th consecutive year HRSA funds have been awarded to WKU School of Nursing through the AENT grant.
