Carl, please unmute me
Jim Fortunato
42:28
Is this funding opportunity a cooperative agreement or grant?
Jennifer Bellot
43:02
Please discuss what constitutes a "preceptor." Does this apply to programming for pre-licensure nursing students AND graduate students?
Celia Vega-Herrera
44:42
The Summary of Funding slide indicated the award amount is up to $1M PER YEAR, however the NOFO (pg. I) indicates up to $1M PER AWARD. Can you please clarify if it's $1M per year or $1M over 4 years? Thank you.
Marian Smithey
44:57
Jim-page 3 NOFO-Type of award is a grant.
C Hong-Bridges (Amaya & Brees 7th)
45:03
Are allowable trainees only newly-hired or transitioning RNs? Or can trainees include incumbent nurses interested in becoming preceptor?
Mary Lynch
45:24
When you discuss the project in an HHS region, does there need to be an equitable implementation of the program throughout the entire HHS region
jennifer.lind
45:50
Would you please clarify what "across the entire region” means? Our organization has a strong footprint the region except for one of the states.
Jim Fortunato
46:11
Thank you! Jasmine had mentioned that it was a cooperative agreement and wanted to confirm.
C Hong-Bridges (Amaya & Brees 7th)
46:32
Does each academy have to offer "a variety of care settings" or can it focus on one type of setting?
Carolyn A Dickens
47:03
I am also looking for clarification about the 1M/year/awardee? or 1M for all four years/awardee?
Jene Duffy
47:25
Does this program include preceptors for nursing students
Tara Spencer
49:27
Hello Celia, The award amount is $1M/per year/per award.
Celia Vega-Herrera
49:41
Thank you!
Marian Smithey

Preceptor-NOFO page 3 Health Workforce Glossary: Preceptor: A health professional responsible for specific aspects of the clinical learning experience. The preceptor is responsible for the daily teaching and assignment of individuals to be cared for, supervision, and participation in the evaluation of the nursing student. The preceptor provides the student with an environment that permits observation, active participation, and management of primary health care.
C Hong-Bridges (Amaya & Brees 7th)
52:36
If a proposed project only includes 1 academic partner and 1 clinical partner (such as an FQHC with multiple service sites), can the academy be a "closed" system, i.e. only train nurses from the academic institution and clinical partner?
Tara Spencer
52:47
Hello C Hong-Bridges! Allowable trainees for this program are licensed nurses that would like to become preceptors to newly- hired RNs or transitioning RNs
Jennifer Bellot
54:19
Ok so to clarify: This NOFO applies to the education of BOTH pre-licensure nursing students AND graduate nursing students?
jennifer.lind
54:48
Who do you primarily expect to see as the lead on this application: the accredited nursing school program or healthcare organizations?
rweiss
55:55
Can you please explain the funding restrictions listed on NOFA page 24? It states that faculty release time is not allowable.
Marian Smithey
57:04
To Jennifer Lind: NOFO Page 4 about the regions: You must select no more than one region to support in your application and you must agree to support the nursing clinical faculty and preceptor workforce education and training needs across the entire region for the full 4-year period of performance.
sarah quinto
59:15
Hi Marian, does "across the region" mean all of the states in the region? Or all of the cities in a given region? Or all medical facilities in a region?
Donna Drucker
01:00:26
The biosketches should only be 2 pages long? Or are only 2 biosketches of standard length (5 pages) allowed?
Janis Raje
01:00:53
How often is this competition held -- every year, every 4 years, some other?
Joanne Noone
01:02:27
When you refer to addressing the social determinants in the workplan is that social determinants that need to be included in the curriculum or social determinants as barriers for successful faculty/preceptors?
Barbara Todd
01:02:56
Is this funding only associated with preceptors in primary care or can it be related to building preceptor capacity in other care settings?
Ann Solari-Twadell
01:03:21
What if clinical partners are in a different HRSA region than the Academic institution? If one award per region how would that be interpreted for the purpose of this grant?
Tracy Rawls
01:03:28
CEU's are associated with a licensure are you saying that this type of training is not allowed?
Lucy Graham
01:04:29
Is there a way to find out if there are other schools/ entities in our region interested in this NOFO? We would love to work collaboratively within our region instead of compete with other entities in our region.
Lisa Glickstein (she/her/hers)
01:05:15
Lucy Graham - great idea, love this
Dr. Cray
01:05:30
Can we apply for a grant for an accredited LVN school and where do we find the requirements and application? I see that the grants are open from 9/22 for for years if awarded is it over the four year process. Plus how do we get a copy of this recording?
Scott Ruschak
01:06:03
Can you provide some examples of how you would implement this across all states in a region?
LLLefler
01:07:14
wait, the budget officers said ~200,000 per year?
Scott Ruschak
01:08:06
Can you explain how the Maintenance of Effort requirement applies to this grant?
Dr Christiana Nwachukwu
01:08:11
Does this grant support Licensed Practical Nurses
Patricia Felton
01:08:50
Does this Grant cover Nursing Assisants?
Annie O'Hara (she/her)
01:08:58
Does HRSA anticipate that there will be any additional future rounds of this program funding, for entities that are not ready to apply but are currently in the planning phase?
Marian Smithey
01:09:06
NOFO Page 4: Summary of funding--HRSA estimates approximately $10,000,000 to be available annually to fund 10 recipients. You may apply for a ceiling amount of up to $1,000,000 total cost (includes both direct and indirect, facilities and administrative costs) per year.
Carolyn A Dickens
01:10:25
In the grant, we discuss clinical faculty and preceptros. Does the NOFO consider them the same or different?
Ophelia
01:10:28
Does the preceptor have to be an RN?
Denise Adams (RUHS)
01:11:17
So we could use this to train current NPs and physicians to be preceptors for student NPs?
KT
01:11:41
Would a Paramedic to RN bridge program qualify?
jennifer.lind
01:11:42
Thank you for your clarity on all of these questions!
Dr. Cray
01:12:10
Can we apply for a grant for an accredited LVN school and where do we find the requirements and application? I see that the grants are open from 9/22 for for years if awarded is it over the four year process. Plus how do we get a copy of this recording?
Sheila
01:13:09
Are there restrictions to the workforce placement of these individuals? Underserved communities? Specific nursing work -areas (eg-bedside nurses) or open to some specialty areas?
Christian Ketel
01:13:36
Is there guidance or restrictions on preceptor financial support/stipends.
Ann McSwain
01:14:33
Does a hospital association qualify as an eligible entity?
Carolyn A Dickens
01:14:43

Scott Ruschak
01:14:48
sruschak.sunrise@nocoha.org
Ann McSwain
01:14:54
When will this recording be available?
Patricia Felton
01:15:30
I'm sorry I did not hear the answer to my question about does this grant cover N.A and PCT Trade Program Schools
Dr Christiana Nwachukwu
01:15:44
Does a professional Nursing organization qualify to apply for this grant?
Rose Rossi (she, her, hers)
01:16:08
Do nursing clinical instructors for undergraduate nursing students fall under this grant?
Jasmine Price
01:17:24
Hello Ann, the recording will be posted and available to the website by next week.
Ophelia
01:17:45
If we are already working with Mount Saint Mary RN students. Their instructors are their preceptors, do they qualify for the grant.
Erica B Benoit
01:18:31
Are there any NEPQR programs considered as successful by HRSA already in existence?
Patricia Felton
01:18:37
ok Thank you
Denise Adams (RUHS)
01:19:41
Thank you.
Joanne Noone
01:19:46
My question was not answered - When you refer to addressing the social determinants in the workplan is that social determinants that need to be included in the curriculum or social determinants as barriers for successful faculty/preceptors?
Lucinda Hines
01:20:39
When traveling for the grant, are meals not allowed?
Sapphire Marc-Harris, GMS HRSA
01:21:30
@Lucinda Hines, No it is not allowable
Gina
01:21:31
If faculty release time is not allowable, how can grant funds be applied for curriculum development?
Dr. Cray
01:21:46
My questioned were not answered either. Can we apply for a grant for an accredited LVN school and where do we find the requirements and application? I see that the grants are open from 9/22 for for years if awarded is it over the four year process. Plus how do we get a copy of this recording?
Ann Solari-Twadell
01:23:07
Thank you !!
Anna Jarrett
01:24:06
I believe we need a definition of faculty release time.
Gina
01:24:09
Sure. How can we pay our factulty to work on necessary curriculum development for this
LLLefler
01:24:29
Time and effort is allowed....not release time, right?
mary c
01:24:33
agree, our faculty teach 18 credist
Dr. Palmer-Lewis
01:24:39
Is there a list of partners that are available which an individual interested in can partner with?
Julia Kelm, LifeLong
01:24:40
Apologies if this has been asked, can this fund an FQHC Nurse Practitioner residency's preceptor curriculum development and training?
Sapphire Marc-Harris, GMS HRSA
01:25:33
@LLLefler, Yes you are correct, Time and effort is allowed....not release time.....
Quyen Phan
01:26:06
Does the partnership liaison (PL) position have to be a full-time position, and can there be more than 1 PL?
Brenda J. Diggs
01:26:22
I’m not a preceptor, or institution, do I qualify?
Lucy Graham
01:26:37
So, the grant could pay a portion of salary and benefits of a FT faculty, but not "release time"...is that correct? Say you wanted to dedicate .4FTE of a faculty to be PI, then the grant would pay that and the university would pay .6 of the faculty who was FT?
Sapphire Marc-Harris, GMS HRSA
01:26:42
For clarification in writing:The individual may be compensated (fee for service) for working on the curriculum development; BUT may not be paid for release time.--Therefore, Release Time is not an allowable cost for this grant program.--Payment of Release time is not allowable under the cost principles
Dr. Cray
01:26:42
Thank you.
cp
01:27:29
Dr. Peltz,Can this grant be applicable to practice offices ?
Julia Kelm, LifeLong
01:28:10
Thank you!
Lucinda Hines
01:28:10
Just to clarify for traveling for the grant (i.e. conferences) the grant will pay for mileage and/or air travel, hotel, conference fees, etc. but no daily per diem for meals?
Jasmine Price
01:28:21
Hello Brenda, to be eligible for NEPQR-CFPA: Eligible applicants include accredited schools of nursing, as defined by 42 U.S.C § 296(2) (PHS Act section 801(2)), health care facilities, including federally qualified health centers or nurse-managed health clinics, or a partnership of such a school and facility.
Christian Ketel
01:29:07
thank you
Gregory Workman
01:29:51
I realize this question is being repeated... because the definition of release time is not clear, but please clarify what release time is. Are you saying that we cannot budget for salaries/effort for PI, team, staff etc. devoted to the work of this project?
Dr. Palmer-Lewis
01:29:52
Is there a list of partners that are available which an individual interested in can partner with?
Erica B Benoit

Erica B Benoit
01:38:05
I haven't read the NOFO but, Envisioning that all awarded grantees develop successful programs that increases nursing preceptors, does HRSA have a Workforce Plan to assist in job placement or assistance in that area?
dianna.vicepasch
01:38:33
Great information. Thanks for this webinar!!
Tom Kelly
01:38:59
Is their a 1 or 2 page limit for biosketches, Page 17 list both 1 and 2 page limits.
Erica B Benoit
01:39:53
Thank you!
Christian Ketel
01:39:58
do all the preceptors have to come from a not for profit organization? for instance, can a participant/preceptor apply for training with the academy even if they are not at a not for profit.
Joseph Filippi
01:40:19
Training preceptors is great, but in terms of finding them employment at a reasonable salary is difficult. Is there any funding opportunities to help pay faculty and preceptors?
Christian Ketel
01:40:23
gotcha
Christian Ketel
01:40:28
thank you
Pollyanna Lee
01:40:50
The applicant needs to develop our own curriculum for the perceptors , right?
Joseph Filippi
01:41:15
Increasing the salary for nursing faculty would increase the amount of faculty available and therefore allow nursing schools to increase the amount of nurses they produce.
Christian Ketel
01:41:53
what are the exact goals to be used for the SWP. I did not see those in the nofo
Tom Kelly
01:41:59
P17, see paragraphs 3 and 5
Dr. Nishelle Hines
01:42:14
I am sorry, I got on late and not sure if this question was answered a=or asked, but can a non-profit organization that is multi-state apply as long as they do most of their work in the initiating chapter of the grant region
Tom Kelly
01:42:41
thank you for the clarification.
Carolyn A Dickens
01:42:43
Do we need letters of support? And will they be included in the page count
Aaron Brown
01:42:48
I came in late so I apologize if this was discussed already, is a recording of this presentation going to be made available?
Jasmine Price
01:43:33
Hello Aaron; the recording will be available on the website by next week.
Erica B Benoit
01:43:39
Hi Tara, I believe you answered this before but I got the end of the answer: Will this NOFO be offered again next year or is this a one-time NOFO?
Joseph Filippi
01:43:57
Can you please send me the other opportunities to offset the salary for nursing faculty? Thank you!joseph@nrhp.org
Aaron Brown
01:44:01
thank you Jasmine.
Oluwaseye Akinbola
01:44:39
As a current Masters nursing student, those this grant or organisation help with student debt?
Jennifer McCord
01:44:42
Can you verify are hospital associations considered eligible entities?
Quyen Phan
01:44:43
Can grant funds be used to support clinical partner organizations in accommodating preceptor trainees with their practicum?
Christian Ketel
01:47:06
so to clarify for the swp. the goals required are:1. the nepqr aims to increase the Nursing faculty and precetors.

Carolyn A Dickens
01:51:39
frequently unions dictate whether nurses can get preceptor pay. Do you have any thoughts about that?
Tom Kelly
01:51:54
Did you relay when the TA recording will be available?
Elizabeth Reynolds
01:52:17
Tom, next week I believe
Tom Kelly
01:52:38
in relation to this grant, we are not "paying" preceptors, is that correct?
Carolyn A Dickens
01:52:47
did you see my question aboutletters of support? are they needed and are they included in the page count
Pollyanna Lee
01:53:20

thank you
Lisa Reyes
01:54:08
Just to clarify - under eligibility - "or a partnership of such a school and facility" means a joint application from a school and facility? The previous answer was unclear to me whether a partner organization to nurse-managed care centers can apply as a lead, or simply be a supporting partner.
Pollyanna Lee
