The 2021 General Assembly established a $500,000 Nursing Preceptor Incentive Program (NPIP) to provide financial incentives for practitioners who serve as otherwise uncompensated preceptors for APRN students to help increase access to care, address the primary care shortage, handle mental health crises, and manage chronic diseases. All of these factors are crucial in improving the health and wellness of all Virginians.
