Information on whether additional traineeships will be offered in 2019 will be posted in the summer.



The CANDL grant team will select 10 full-time FNP students for Summer 2018 through Spring 2019 (3 semesters) to receive traineeship funds. CANDL trainees will receive $6,500 per semester for Summer 2018, Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 as long as all grant requirements are maintained.

Eligible students are U.S. citizens who are licensed RNs enrolled full time in UTC’s FNP program, maintaining a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and are preparing to sit for the ANCC or AANP FNP certification exam upon completion of the FNP Program. This term (Summer 2018) is only for May 2019 Cohort FNP students.


  • Fulfill clinical obligations at an approved CANDL partner site serving highly underserved rural and/or disadvantaged urban communities.

  • Attend on-campus classes, seminars, and simulation on Wednesdays.

  • Be available for clinical practice on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. 

After your clinical schedule has been set for the semester, you may use extra days for outside work during the summer and fall semesters ONLY. You should not plan to work during your Final Practicum in Spring 2019 since you will need to work at least three clinical days per week and be on campus on Wednesdays.

Students are expected to fulfill all traineeship related obligations, which will be reviewed at the end of each semester. Students who do not meet these obligations will be replaced by alternate applicants for the remainder of the traineeship period.


Applications for Summer 2018 will be due by Monday March 19th, 2018. 

Selected Students will be notified March 30th, 2018
