08/10/12  Portland, Ore.

Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) School of Nursing announced today that it has been selected as one of 55 schools to receive grant funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

 During the 2012-2013 academic year, OHSU School of Nursing will receive $50,000 to support students in the school’s accelerated baccalaureate program who are traditionally underrepresented in the field of nursing and are pursuing a second career in nursing. The New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program (NCIN) was launched in 2008 by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) to expand enrollment in accelerated degree programs in schools of nursing while increasing diversity in the nursing workforce.
