FIU Graduate Nursing and
Hendry counties – two of Florida’s most underserved communities near Lake Okeechobee – are partnering on a pilot nursing education program to create a primary care lifeline for a population in need: rural Floridians.
With $1.39 million from the U.S. Health Resources & Services Administration, grants up to $20,000 will be awarded to select FIU Adult or Family NP MSN students to participate in the Advanced Nursing Education Workforce – ANEW – Traineeship Program.
ANEW will prepare primary care advanced practice registered nursing (APRN) students to practice in rural and underserved settings through innovative academic and clinical training.
ANEW can also help pay for your education while you engage in a life-changing clinical experience that may shape your professional future and the outlook for primary care in rural America.
Due to the ongoing risk of COVID-19 and precautions set in place by Florida International University and the Florida Governor, we have decided to postpone the ANEW Summer 2020 cohort until Spring 2021. Please stay tuned for further updates and announcements. Thank you.
