LSU health nursing awarded grant to improve access to education & advanced nursing care
Date:8/22/2014

New Orleans, LA The LSU Health New Orleans School of Nursing was awarded a $700,000 Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship grant to increase access to advanced nursing education and patient care for disadvantaged, underserved and under-represented groups, as well as veterans. The Health Resources and Services Administration of the US Department of Health and Human Services awarded the two-year grant. Scharalda Jeanfreau, DNS, FNP, will serve as the grant's project director.

The Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) Program is designed to meet the needs of licensed registered nurses seeking graduate nursing education in Primary Care Family Nurse Practitioner (PCFNP) at the master's and doctoral levels. The AENT Program at LSU Health New Orleans will provide traineeship funding for up to 50 eligible full-time and part-time (within 12 months of graduation) PCFNP students to cover a portion of the costs of tuition, fees, books and reasonable living expenses. Recipients of the funding support must commit to practice in Health Professional Shortage Areas and/or Medically Underserved Areas/Communities for at least one year after graduation. The funds will be distributed twice per year (fall and spring semesters) among eligible applicants, providing preferential funding for those applicants meeting criteria of background, need and commitment.

Student clinical experiences in the program include providing care for minority, disadvantaged, underserved and rural populations. More than 65% of the clinical training sites are in either rural, medically underserved or Health Professional Shortage Areas.
