Rutgers College of Nursing has entered into an agreement with the Episcopal University in Haiti in an effort to increase the number of skilled nursing professionals in the Caribbean nation. There is major shortage of nurses in Haiti.

The Rutger College of Nursing received a grant from the Haiti Nursing Foundation to develop a 10-month professional development program for nursing faculty at Episcopal University. The Haitian university aims to develop a master’s degree program in nursing, the first in the island nation. The new program will be developed under the guidance of Elise Lev, an associate professor of nursing at Rutgers. The master’s degree nursing program will include on-site and online training.
