URMC nursing school scores $130,000 scholarship grant

Rochester Business Journal

The University of Rochester Medical Center’s School of Nursing has won a $130,000 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing scholarship grant, school officials said Wednesday.

The foundation’s NCIN program awards scholarships to help students who are taking up nursing as a second career.

Under the grant, 13 students each will receive a $10,000 award. The program puts enrollees with non-nursing B.A.s who want to change careers on a fast track to earn a nursing B.A.

The UR school’s current round of NCIN scholarships marks the seventh year it has won a grant from the program.

Jointly supported by RWJF and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the NCIN scholarship program has previously benefited 91 UR nursing school students.
