Modern Healthcare

Hospitals that want to train and develop advanced-practice nurses have two months to apply for a new demonstration project, the CMS announced Wednesday.

Authorized under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—which Congress passed two years ago today—the Graduate Nurse Education Demonstration will select up to five hospitals that must partner with nursing schools and non-hospital, community-based settings to provide clinical training to advanced-practice registered nurses, including nurse practitioners, clinical-nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists or nurse midwives.
