The purpose of this program is to support eligible entities to meet the cost of traineeships for individuals in Nurse Anesthesia degree programs.  Nurse Anesthetists are on the front lines of the opioid epidemic, especially in rural areas, where they are often the sole provider of anesthesia services.  As part of their training, these individuals learn about multi-modal pain management and opioid addition and treatment, which are a key part of helping communities address the opioid crisis.     Grants are awarded to accredited institutions that educate registered nurses to become nurse anesthetists; recipient institutions, in turn, disburse funds to students in the form of traineeship support. The funds for the NAT Program are distributed among all eligible applicant institutions based on a formula. This funding opportunity will help address U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) clinical priority of addressing opioid abuse by providing funds to support Student Registered Nurse Anesthetists (SRNAs) training or continuing education related to pain management, opioid abuse prevention and treatment. SRNAs may use traineeship funds during the period for which the traineeship is provided for full or partial costs of the tuition and fees, books/e-books, reasonable living expenses (stipends) and to attend workshops or conferences on topics including, but not limited to, reduced opioid abuse, multi-modal pain management, and recovery.
