Funding for 2019-20 from NES is available for trainee ANPs within NHSGGC area.
NES funding is also available for trainee ANPs employed by independent contractors (e.g. GP practices etc) and information on this has been circulated by Primary Care Support to practices.
Information on funding for trainee ANPs directly employed by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is detailed below.
ONLY nurses who are actively being supported by their clinical area and are in a trainee ANP post will be funded.
Application process for funding NEW TRAINEE ANPs
The application for ANP funding is a 2-step process for new trainee ANPs:
Trainees should apply directly to the University for a place on the appropriate ANP programme. If uncertain about which programme a trainee should go on then contact the Consultant Nurse – Advanced Practice for advice and to obtain a copy of their education plan ([email protected])
It is the trainee’s responsibility to:
University of the West of Scotland
Glasgow Caledonian University
Please note that funding can only be applied for one year at a time, so a further SL2 form will be needed for the second year of any programme. Trainees will be sent a link with details of how to apply for the second year’s funding once they can evidence they’ve completed the first year.
