The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has awarded grants to 52 schools of nursing as part of the foundation’s New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program, according to a news release. For the 2014-2015 academic year, the schools will receive grants to support traditionally underrepresented students who are making a career switch to nursing through an accelerated baccalaureate or master’s degree program.
“Nursing and nursing education are at a critical juncture right now, and NCIN’s exemplary approach to supporting nursing schools is helping to strengthen both,” American Association of Colleges of Nursing President Eileen Breslin, RN, PhD, FAAN, said in a news release. “NCIN’s creative, innovative and responsive approach to providing grantees with tools to ensure academic success will result in lasting changes at nursing schools nationwide. ”
