Diversity in the workplace is vital to a thriving workplace, and the Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future is proud to support the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and its national Minority Nurse Faculty Scholars program to help achieve that goal. This collaborative effort provides financial support, mentoring and leadership development to minority graduate students committed to teaching in schools of nursing after graduation.
The partnership between the Campaign and AACN began in 2007 to help full-time students in minority communities with an interest in teaching, and invites applications from students in doctoral and clinically-focused master’s programs who will serve as nurse faculty after completing their degrees. To date, the partnership between AACN, the Campaign and other partner organizations has resulted in more than $29 million in scholarship funding for minority nursing students.
AACN is currently accepting applications for the next round of awards. The deadline to apply is May 1, 2013, and new award recipients will be announced in August 2013.
