Baltimore-UMSON Faculty Receive Grants

Four faculty members from the University of Maryland School of Nursing, Baltimore, were awarded Nurse Support Program II grants: Janice Hoffman, PhD, RN, assistant professor and assistant dean for the BSN program; Shannon Idzik, DNP, CRNP, assistant professor and director of the DNP program; and co-recipients Louise S. Jenkins, PhD, RN, professor, and Carol O'Neil, RN, PhD, CNE, associate professor, co-directors of the Institute for Educators in Nursing and Health Professions.

NSP II grants, awarded through the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission and the Maryland Higher Education Commission, aim to increase the capacity of nurse educators in Maryland to help reduce the national nursing shortage.

With its NSP II grants, the University of Maryland School of Nursing seeks to revise and expand its RN-to-BSN program; increase faculty development in workforce planning and interprofessional collaboration; and prepare nurses to function as clinical teachers in pre-licensure nursing programs.
