Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program

The Dwight Schar College of Nursing & Health Sciences was selected as a grant recipient of the prestigious Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program (NCIN) for the 2013 - 2014 academic year.

The NCIN is a program of RWJF and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).  Each NCIN Scholar has already earned a bachelor’s degree in another field and is making a career switch to nursing through an accelerated nursing degree program.  An accelerated nursing program prepares students to pass the licensure exam required for all registered nurses in as little as 12-18 months.

In addition to a $10,000 scholarship,  NCIN scholars receive other support to help them meet the demands of an accelerated degree program.  All NCIN grantee schools maintain a leadership program and a mentoring program for their scholars, as well as a pre-entry immersion program to help scholars learn study, test-taking, and other skills that will help them manage the challenges of an accelerated program.
