The Johnson & Johnson School Health Leadership Program is a highly competitive, FREE1 professional development program for school nurses and their colleagues.  All teams should represent a defined community and include two to four school nurses and one community or administrative partner.

Once accepted into the program, participants will receive invaluable educational and networking opportunities designed to empower school nurses to be leaders within their community’s educational and health services teams. Participants will graduate as Johnson & Johnson School Health Fellows with the skills to effect positive health change in their communities.  

The Johnson & Johnson School Health Leadership Program is designed and implemented by Rutgers, Center of Alcohol Studies with an educational partnership with National Association of School Nurses.

This program would not be possible without the generous support of Johnson & Johnson.

Support for New Jersey teams' participation in this program is provided in part by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s New Jersey Health Initiatives program.
