This announcement solicits grant applications for the Nursing Workforce Diversity (NWD) Program.

Grants are awarded to eligible applicants to increase nursing education opportunities


for individuals who are from disadvantaged backgrounds, including racial and ethnic minorities underrepresented among registered nurses, through projects that incorporate retention, pre-entry preparation, and student scholarships and/or stipends.

Applicants are required to address all three program components (retention, pre-entry preparation, student stipends/scholarships) during each year of the project.

The project must include a cohort of nursing students who, within the three-year award period, will graduate and be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN or obtain a baccalaureate degree in Nursing, if already licensed as registered nurses.
