           Daemen College has been awarded a grant of $1,425,600.00 from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to provide support for advanced practice nursing students. This is funding – nearly $5 million in new federal dollars that are being made available through the stimulus – is helping to expand the nurse practitioner workforce in Western New York.
          The federal funding will provide financial assistance to students enrolled in Daemen’s Adult Nurse Practitioner Master's Degree Program. The federal funds will be used to provide stipends to students ($22,000 per year per student, with a maximum of two years of stipend funding). Additionally, the stipends will support converting students from part-time to full-time and enrolling new full-time students. The project period extends over five years.


           “In an ever changing, complex healthcare arena, the field of nursing is continually inspired to grow and move beyond its traditions,” said Daemen President Dr. Martin J. Anisman.  “We are grateful to the Department of Health & Human Services for this generous support, which will enable nursing professionals to better meet the challenges presented by this rapidly changing healthcare field.”


          The Daemen Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program is an advanced practice clinical doctorate, which will afford Advance Practice Nurses the opportunity to expand their knowledge base and skill set.
