Objectives are to:

  • Describe the need to build the next generation of nurse leaders in non-profit health care systems to achieve the highest level of patient care outcomes
  • Describe the RWJF Future of Nursing Scholars program
  • Identify unique opportunities for non-profit health care systems to support a few of their key employees in partnership with RWJF for the Future of Nursing Scholars program

The Future of Nursing Scholars program aims to dramatically increase the number of nurses with PhDs, supporting the best and brightest nurses as they pursue advanced degrees. The program will prepare the clinical leaders, scientists, faculty and administrators who will shape not only the future of nursing but the future of health care as a whole.  There is a unique opportunity for non-profit health care systems to help support a few of their key employees in this program.  Hear from two Chief Nursing Officers, Linda Burns Bolton and Maureen White, as they describe their incentives for partnering with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation on this program.  Please note that Robert Wood Johnson Foundation regulations only allow a partnership with non-profit health care systems.
