    The overall purpose of the Nursing Workforce Diversity (NWD) program is to increase nursing education opportunities for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds (including racial and ethnic minorities underrepresented among registered nurses). The purpose of this NOFO is to strengthen 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.

    The objective of the NWD-E2 program is to achieve a sustainable eldercare nursing workforce by providing enhanced educational opportunities to individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. The program seeks to equip the nursing students with the competencies necessary to address health care disparities related to access and delivery of care of elderly populations in rural and underserved areas.

    • Improving mental health access and care
    • Transforming the healthcare system through value-based care delivery and quality improvement initiatives
    • Transforming the workforce by targeting the need
    • Strengthening health care access through telehealth
