An Academic-Practice Partnership to transition ethnically diverse graduates into community health settings
Welcome to the website of the New Jersey City University (NJCU) Nursing's HRSA Grant (Health Research & Service Association) to increase nursing workforce diversity. NJCU Nursing recognizes a strong connection between a culturally diverse nursing workforce and providing culturally competent care. Hence, this HRSA Grant is an extraordinary opportunity for nurses from the ethnic backgrounds (Hispanic or African American Heritage) to become the next generation of diverse nursing leaders. Candidates must have successfully completed an Applied Associate's degree from either Essex County College or Passaic County Community College, our partner Colleges in the HRSA Grant. In The academic portion of the grant the recipient will complete their BSN curriculum at NJCU in one year; the clinical portion will provide for a stellar experience in a Nursing Residency Program at the Magnet designated Jersey City Medical Center and the Jersey City Public Health Department. I encourage any qualified candidate to submit an application by June 1st of 2015 for this exclusive opportunity to excel in the profession of nursing. It is our goal that the HRSA graduates will assume leadership roles and actively shape the health care of tomorrow.
Welcome to your future,
