Nurse Preceptor Incentive Grants Program

Nurse Preceptor Incentive Grants Program

The Nurse Preceptor Incentive Grants Program is a grant opportunity for Vermont’s Critical Access Hospitals and other health care employers being issued by the Agency of Human Services per Act 183 of 2022 and Act 3 of 2023. The intent of the Nurse Preceptor Incentive Grants Program is to increase compensation for nurses who provide student preceptor supervision in Vermont’s Critical Access Hospitals and in other Vermont health care settings. To that end, the program provides grant funds that will enable successful applicants to distribute incentive pay to eligible employees who provide preceptor supervision for student nurses enrolled in Vermont nursing schools completing clinical training at their organization. Grants will be awarded through an application process, and funds will be distributed to successful applicants on a reimbursement basis following the close of the application period.

A total of $2.38 million is available through the program. Successful applicants must disburse grant funds for preceptor supervision completed between July 1, 2023 and June 30, 2024.  If funding allows, the grant end period may be extended up to but no later than September 30, 2026.
