Opinion Piece on Addressing the New Jersey Nursing Shortage

John R. Lumpkin, senior vice president and director of the Health Care Group at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and chair of the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital board of directors, and Susan Bakewell-Sachs, program director of the New Jersey Nursing Initiative (NJNI) and interim provost of the College of New Jersey, recently authored a piece for the Star-Ledger which provides some details about the way that NJNI tries to address the potential of a nursing shortage in New Jersey.

Thirty-eight scholars have already graduated, with many now teaching in the state.
