Nursing education for health care employees

The Foundation's program, New Jersey Health Initiatives, was designed to support innovative community-based projects that address one or more of the Foundation's goals in health and health care.This grant will enable current health care employees to complete an RN program by attending class one day per week (primarily on-site in host institutions) supplemented by Web-assisted instruction. Innovative delivery modes in teaching and learning will be developed, and the program will attract individuals who could not otherwise pursue nursing studies while working full time. All classroom, laboratory, and clinical face-to-face learning experiences are delivered in a single day of the week within an existing hospital, allowing students to maintain their employment in health care. All hospitals in Ocean and southern Monmouth counties have agreed to recruit their employees actively and adjust their schedules to take advantage of this program.
