New Jersey Psychiatric Nursing Jobs

Like most of the country, New Jersey is facing the challenge of filling nursing jobs. The issue has been a lack of nursing faculty to train the many students wanting to pursue nursing as a career. A new program called the New Jersey Nursing Initiative is aiming to solve this problem by offering scholarships to current nurses who become instructors, which will lead to a greater enrollment of nursing students who can be trained and placed in hospitals. The program is set to run through 2013, with the goal of boosting nursing jobs and reversing the shortage trend.
