AACN is pleased to announce that five new Minority Nurse Faculty Scholars have been selected through a national scholarship program funded by the Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future. Launched to address the faculty shortage and enhance diversity among nurse educators, this AACN-administered program provides generous financial support, mentoring, and leadership development to graduate students from minority backgrounds who aspire to teach in our nation’s schools of nursing.
In August 2016, AACN conducted its seventh online survey of nursing schools offering baccalaureate and graduate programs in the U.S. to better assess the experience of new graduates in finding employment during these tough economic times. For the fifth consecutive year, AACN asked schools to identify if employers in their region were requiring or preferring that new Registered Nurse (RN) hires have at least a baccalaureate degree in nursing.
In an effort to better understand the financial aid needs of graduate nursing students, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing asks for your participation in a brief survey on graduate nursing students’ experience with student loans. Graduate nursing students that have not taken out student loans are also asked to respond to a short set of questions about graduate program cost and program level. The survey will close on January 6, 2017.
