THA is pleased to distribute a Request for Proposals to distribute available funding remaining from previous Tennessee Promise of Nursing Campaigns hosted in Tennessee. Several hospitals and healthcare agencies, Johnson & Johnson and other national companies with an interest in supporting nursing education contributed funding for these campaigns. Twelve nursing grants were awarded in 2016, and we are now fortunate to seek proposals to award an additional $124,000 for three to five successful projects that focus on nursing challenges and potential solutions
Applications should focus on collaborative and creative approaches to address nursing workforce challenges in Tennessee. Only Tennessee nursing schools or nonprofit hospitals or organizations located in Tennessee with a 501C3 IRS determination status that have a focus in healthcare are eligible to apply.
The submission deadline is September 30, 2017. Awards will be announced by October 31, 2017. If you have questions regarding the application process or eligibility, please contact Bill Jolley or Mary Ann Watson at 615-256-8240.
