Grants help students change careers

Yale School of Nursing is one of 55 nursing schools to take part in the New Careers in Nursing (NCIN) scholarship program for the 2012–13 academic year. Schools receiving grants through NCIN provide $10,000 scholarships directly to students from groups underrepresented in nursing or from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Scholarship recipients have already earned a bachelor’s degree in another field and are making a career switch to nursing through accelerated nursing programs. YSN has five NCIN scholars this year. The NCIN program is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
