Nevada Nurse Apprentice Program

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

What is a Nurse Apprentice?
A Nurse Apprentice is an employee of an agency who is currently enrolled in a pre-licensure registered nurse (RN) or licensed practical nurse (LPN) nursing program. Nurse Apprentices work at a health care facility providing nursing care following the Nevada State Board of Nursing approved skills list.

Funding is available directly to the Nurse Apprentice if the travel distance is over 50 miles one way from the employing hospital. This funding will reimburse at the GSA rates for food per diem, mileage, and lodging if needed (with lodging receipt required). This reimbursement will be made via EFT so banking information is required.

All request forms are due by the 10th of each month for travel that occurred the month prior
