Daines Announces $349,000 for MSU Advanced Nursing Education

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today announced $349,000 in funding for advanced nursing education at Montana State University in Bozeman.

“The nurse training program at Montana State University is a great resource for providing quality care in communities across Montana,” Daines stated.

The Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) program gives preference to applicants that substantially benefit rural or underserved populations, or help meet public health nursing needs in State or local health departments. Funding is used to increase the number of advanced education nurses trained to practice as primary care providers and/or nursing faculty to address the nurse faculty shortage that inhibits nursing schools from educating the number of nurses needed to meet demand.
