Proposed Project: Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) and Nurse Anesthetist Traineeship (NAT): In Use Without Approval
The Health Resources and Services and Administration (HRSA) provides training grants to educational institutions to increase the numbers of advanced education nurses through the Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) program and the Nurse Anesthetist Traineeship (NAT) program.
HRSA developed the AENT and NAT tables for the guidance applications for the two nursing traineeship programs. The AENT and NAT tables are used annually by grant applicants that are applying for AENT and NAT funding. The funds appropriated for the AENT and NAT programs are distributed among eligible institutions based on a formula. Award amounts are based on enrollment and graduate data reported on the tables and two funding factors (Statutory Funding Preference and Statutory Special Consideration) to those institutions which the criteria for one or both of the funding factors.
The AENT/NAT tables include information on program participants such as the number of enrollees, number of graduates and the types of programs they are enrolling into and/or from which they are graduating. These tables will be available electronically through Grants.gov. AENT and NAT applicants will have a single access point to submit their grant applications and AENT/NAT Traineeship tables.
Data from the tables will be used in the award determination and validation process. Additionally, the data will be used to ensure programmatic compliance, report to Congress and policymakers on the program accomplishments, and formulate and justify future budgets for these activities submitted to OMB and Congress.
