What is the program?

The NWD program increases nursing education opportunities for people from disadvantaged backgrounds (including racial and ethnic minorities underrepresented among registered nurses).

This NOFO strengthens the eldercare workforce in rural communities where there are health care disparities related to access and delivery of care through the expansion of these opportunities for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
