Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing Scholarship

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program (NCIN) seeks to increase the number of professional nurses by recruiting and enrolling students into the profession from groups underrepresented and economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The NCIN Scholarship Program is steadfast to provide students with mentoring and leadership activities to develop their skills as future leaders in nursing as well as providing the supports to ensure retention in the program. While it is an honor for students to receive this grant, there is also an obligation to fulfill the expectations of the program as outlined by NCIN.

The NCIN invests in scholarships for college graduates with degrees in other fields who wish to transition into nursing through an accelerated baccalaureate or master's nursing program. The Quinnipiac School of Nursing is one of a community of 119 schools in the country of nursing grantees honored by this unique partnership.  

Since 2011, Quinnipiac School of Nursing has been selected to receive funds from the foundation. Eighteen Quinnipiac nursing students have each received $10,000 scholarships to support their studies in nursing.
