Did you know that schools with research-focused PhD programs in nursing are now eligible to apply for the Future of Nursing Scholars program?
This program is part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Advancing Change Leadership team. According to the Future of Nursing Scholar's webpage, the program aims to "ensure that the nation has a diverse, well-trained leadership and workforce to build a Culture of Health across this country, in which good health flourishes across all demographics, where being as healthy as possible and staying that way are esteemed social values, and where everyone has access to affordable, quality health care. Building a well-prepared cadre of researchers, innovators, policy makers, nurse leaders, and faculty is key to meeting these goals."
Building a culture of health is vitally important and is based on the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report. The selected schools will choose the PhD students to be Scholars. Eligibility includes that:
- the school must be committed to facilitating the student’s completion of the PhD in three years.
- the scholar must also be committed to completing their PhD program in three years.
