The Jonas Nurse Leaders Scholars Program, created in 2008, is focused on increasing the number of advanced practice nurses who can excel as health care leaders, nursing school faculty and as primary care providers. The program also prepares doctoral candidates to help students address the needs of future patients, including dealing with co-morbidities and chronic illnesses and providing culturally competent care.
PhD and DNP students are nominated to become Jonas Nurse Leaders.
The Jonas Center for Nursing Excellence has three key mission areas:
Developing outstanding faculty
Sparking innovative practice
