The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Future of Nursing Scholars Program

      Over its almost 50 years history, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has provided about $500M in support of programs to advance nursing practice, education, research, policy, and leadership development. RWJF believes that nurses are critical to improving the health and well-being of all Americans and building a Culture of Health and health equity in the United States. One key issue that RWJF has addressed repeatedly over the past 25 years is the persistent shortage of nurse faculty, particularly those with a PhD degree. The 2011 National Academy of Medicine, Future of Nursing report, sponsored by RWJF, recommended doubling the number of nurses with a doctoral degree (especially a PhD).
