Baltimore-UMSON Awarded 'New Careers in Nursing' Grants

For the fifth time, the University of Maryland School of Nursing, Baltimore, was selected as a grant recipient of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program.

Ten $10,000 scholarships will be awarded for the 2013-2014 academic year to newly admitted students in the clinical nurse leader master's degree option. Award preference is given to students from groups underrepresented in nursing or from disadvantaged backgrounds.

"We are pleased that the University of Maryland School of Nursing has again been awarded these scholarship funds, which will help reduce some of the financial burden for our students," said Gail Schoen Lemaire, PhD, PMHCNS-BC, CNL, associate professor and director of the clinical nurse leader program.

"Because the program is so rigorous, students are discouraged from working. Previous scholarship recipients have been very grateful for the funds that can be used for tuition, books, child care and other living expenses." 

The school of nursing is one of 52 to receive funding for the upcoming academic year.
