In 2008, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) joined with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) to create the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing (NCIN) Program in an initiative to alleviate the nationwide nursing shortage and increase diversity within the nursing profession.
Through grants to selected schools of nursing, the NCIN program provides scholarship funding to college graduates with degrees in other fields who wish to transition into nursing [hence, "new careers in nursing"] through an accelerated bachelor's or master's degree nursing program. Launched as a three-year program, the NCIN program will support a total of 500 or more one-time scholarships at $10,000 each, with funding going to selected schools of nursing.
