Younger nurse faculty will teach longer, and will prepare many more of the nurses our state and our country need."

There are four major components to the "New Jersey Nursing Initiative." In addition to supporting the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Jersey Nursing Scholars with full tuition and fees, a $50,000 per year stipend and a laptop computer, the Faculty Preparation Program is working to develop, implement and evaluate new curricula for students at the masters and doctoral levels. The curricula is likely to become a model for the country.

The Faculty Preparation Program has awarded five grants totaling $13.5 million to New Jersey masters and doctoral level nursing programs. Grants of $3 million were awarded to the PhD in Nursing Programs at both Seton Hall University and Rutgers University. The MSN in Nursing Programs at two collaboratives - one comprised of William Paterson University, Richard Stockton College, Kean University, and The College of New Jersey; and the other of Fairleigh Dickinson, Monmouth University and Bloomfield College - each received $2.5 million, as did the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
