Federal Nurse Traineeship
Traineeships are administered by the School of Nursing. As a result of a grant from the Human Resources and Service Administration (HRSA), the Purdue School of Nursing has funding to support fifteen Traineeships in 2014-16. These traineeships are specifically earmarked for graduate nursing students becoming nurse practitioners. An annual traineeship is for $22,000 which includes tuition and living support for a one year period.
