About the Program

The Future of Nursing Scholars program is creating a diverse cadre of PhD prepared nurses who are committed to a long-term leadership career; advancing science and discovery through research; strengthening nursing education; and furthering transformational change in nursing and health care.

The nursing and health care workforce will face considerably more pressure as more people enter the health care system, the population becomes more diverse, new bacteria and diseases surface, and technology becomes more complex.

Nurse faculty, who prepare new nurses, must be well prepared in research, science, and education techniques to pass along cutting-edge knowledge and skills to those they teach. These faculty prepare the next generation of skilled nurses in hospitals and home care, advanced practice nurses in primary care, and nurse leaders in research, policy, and education.
