Minority Nurse Leadership Institute

The Rutgers University School of Nursing Minority Nurse Leadership Institute (MNLI) is designed for aspiring minority nurse leaders who have an earned bachelor’s degree in nursing and at least two years of experience in full-time nursing practice.

MNLI Fellows are chosen through a competitive selection process. We are inviting applications for MNLI Fellowships to begin Fall 2018.

MNLI Purpose

The MNLI curriculum includes a variety of educational strategies for developing leadership knowledge, competence, and outcomes. The 10-month mentored leadership development curriculum is built upon the foundation of three domains:

  1. Individual minority nurse leadership development;
  2. Advancing evidence-based nursing practice to address minority and community health challenges through leadership of team projects; and
  3. Fellows’ expanded scope of influence within their sponsoring institutions, the community, and the profession.

MNLI Fellows

Limited seats are available. Applications are due April 2, 2018. Tuition is $2,000.

* Nursing contact hours will be awarded to MNLI Fellows upon their completion of the MNLI experience.
