Clinical Sites Grants

Clinical Site Grants

Each year the NC AHEC Program office sends out a request for proposals to all nursing schools across the state. Each regional AHEC is responsible for the Schools of Nursing in their area.  The clinical site grants are to help develop clinical sites throughout the state in order to facilitate educational efforts of students in North Carolina.  The development of these sites should be geared to rural and underserved communities, at-risk populations, primary care, workforce shortage areas, long-term care, public school settings, and clinical sites for nursing education graduate programs.

Priorities of the Clinical Site Grant program are to expose the greatest number of students at all levels of education, expand upon successful clinical site training models, utilize and develop well-trained preceptors who practice in these new sites, and to develop these sites so that they can become self-supporting in three years or less.

The clinical site grants are reviewed by each regional AHEC. The final review and selection of grants are then completed by the NC AHEC Program office.
