  • The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) launched NJNI in 2009 to address New Jersey’s nurse faculty shortage and help avert a projected shortage of more than 23,000 nurses in the state by 2030.
  • NJNI’s Faculty Preparation Program supported 61 New Jersey Nursing Scholars who are pursuing, or have completed, master’s or doctoral degrees in New Jersey nursing programs. These nurses are poised to assume nurse faculty roles in the state.
  • NJNI led the development of several clinical innovations projects across the state to more closely link nursing education and practice, including dedicated education units and renewed education for clinical preceptors.
