The National League for Nursing (NLN) recently announced increased support for several of its faculty development initiatives. Made possible through funding from the Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future, this will facilitate an expansion in the coming year or two of the NLN’s signature leadership programs, and make possible the creation of a third program within the NLN Leadership Institute.
“We value the longstanding relationship we have with the NLN and are pleased to expand our support of critical nurse educator training programs and initiatives,” said Andrea Higham, Director of the Campaign. “One of the pillars of our campaign is nurse retention – high-caliber, leadership-focused program experiences such as these help propel existing nurses and nurse educators to the next level of their careers. This shared commitment to excellence in nursing education helps us move closer to a day when we will have enough nurse leaders to meet the healthcare needs of our patients and communities.”
