The Center works on behalf of nurses to provide evidence-based recommendations regarding the nursing workforce and its impact on patient care. NJCCN is located at Rutgers School of Nursing’s Newark campus, and is guided by a 17-member board representing New Jersey nursing and health care stakeholders.
