RWJF Public Health Nurse Leaders
Public health nurses provide care and education in homes, workplaces, and community centers. For two years, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has offered these community health nurses a two-year leadership development program intended to strengthen the Culture of Health movement. Those chosen to be RWJF Public Health Nurse Leaders, through training, have become senior-level advocates able to lead efforts to coordinate individuals, organizations, and communities to build healthier communities. These nurses also work closely with their state Action Coalition in a relationship that is mutually beneficial in providing a network of important key influencers for each to work with on building a Culture of Health.
