New Jersey Collaborating Center for Nursing (NJCCN)
The New Jersey Collaborating Center for Nursing (NJCCN) was established by state legislation on December 12, 2002. The
Center works on behalf of nurses to provide evidence-based recommendations regarding the nursing workforce and its impact on patient care. The Center is housed in Rutgers School of Nursing, Newark Campus, and is guided by a 17-member board representing New Jersey nursing and health care stakeholders. View the NJCCN website.
