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
See the participation agreement here before you signup. Only eligible facilities are allowed to enroll, if your facility is not listed, please use the contact form below to reach out to us for help.

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. The total monthly hours must be reported in hourly decimal format, NOT hours and minutes (see chart here).

For facilities that have both Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) and Acute departments, 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.
