Nevada Nurse Apprentice Program

Nurse Apprentice Program (NAP) American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Grant

An authorized signer for the facility must electronically sign the participation agreement. Nevada Rural Hospital Partners president will review and countersign the participation agreement. You will receive a signed copy for your records. Banking information is required for electronic funds transfer (EFT) to your account. 

Eligible facilities for the Nurse Apprentice Program ARPA Grant are limited to the following:

  • Skilled Nursing Facilities
  • Critical Access Hospitals
  • State Facilities
  • Non-Profit Hospitals
  • Long-Term Acute Care Hospitals

Each month, your facility must submit a payment request form. You will be asked to upload your Nurse Apprentice’s timesheet. Please note that this form must be submitted each month for each nurse apprentice.  Requests are due by the 10th of each month for the hours worked in the prior month. Payments for nurse apprentice and supervising nurse salary will be deposited via EFT

For those facilities with Acute and SNF, we require that you report monthly hours worked in each department.

9/20/22 NOTICE: LPNs are paid at a different rate so a separate form (above) must be completed for LPN Nurse Apprentices

If your facility has offered a retention bonus to a former nurse apprentice who is now licensed as a nurse, you can request a retention payment of up to $4,000 here. Proof of licensure, a copy of the signed agreement between the facility and nurse, with a copy of the check showing the bonus was paid is required.
