GHSU College of Nursing is a proud partner of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing Program. New Careers in Nursing (NCIN) is a scholarship program to help alleviate the nursing shortage and increase the diversity of nursing professionals. Through grants to schools of nursing, the program provides financial awards to college graduates without nursing degrees who are enrolled in accelerated baccalaureate and master's nursing programs. This program is an essential component of the College's efforts to graduate more nurses who understand and reflect the ever-evolving cultural mix of our society.
GHSU College of Nursing first received funding through NCIN in 2008. Now in its fifth year, we remain the only NCIN partner institution in the state of Georgia. Each fall, NCIN coordinators offer newly enrolled pre-licensure, master's-entry (Clinical Nurse Leader) students an opportunity to apply for the scholarships. Recipients, called RWJ Scholars, are selected through a competitive process.
