Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program
New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program aims to ease the nation’s nursing shortage by attracting new students into the profession of nursing while enhancing efforts to recruit students from underrepresented groups in nursing. Besides scholarship funding, this program also provides valuable support to students as they transition from other fields of study into nursing.
Five $10,000 scholarships will be awarded to underrepresented students. Underrepresented is defined by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation as ethnicity, gender, and/or financial need. Applications must be submitted to the SSON scholarship coordinator by December 21.
For more information contact Sherri Ulbrich, PhD, RN (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Cheryl Bausler, PhD, RN (email@example.com).
