Participating Schools by State

The Jonas Nurse Leaders Scholar Program was created to support educational development of new nursing faculty. The grants, made through institutional awards, also prepare doctoral candidates to help students address the needs of future patients. The Jonas Nurse Leaders Scholar Program is pleased to expand across all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia, with our new cohort of 142 scholars in fall 2012. Joining our past two cohorts of Jonas Scholars, this group of more than 200 future nurse leaders are at the leading nursing schools across the country:
