This message is being sent on behalf of Dr. Anthony Albanese, Acting Chief of Health Professions Education.
OAA is pleased to announce nursing and associated health education stipend allocations for the 2020-21 academic year. Please see the attached memorandum for instructions on how to access the approved training allocations report for your facility. We also ask that you share this information with your facility/discipline training directors and have them review the report carefully to verify for accuracy.
If any associated health or nursing discrepancies are identified please have training directors notify the DEO, the national profession lead (program office), and OAA’s associated health or nursing section. OAA must be notified of discrepancies by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or the Nursing POC, Jemma.Ayvazian@va.gov no later than Friday, March 13, 2020. If you are returning any position(s) that you are unable to fill following a profession-specific match you must also notify OAA through the newly created AH and Nursing Field Filled Positions database (OAA Support Center).
