The Institute for Nursing Excellence

Let’s Shape the Future of Nursing Together

Welcome to The Institute for Nursing Excellence! We are dedicated to building and sustaining a nursing workforce that reflects the diverse communities we serve. Through continuous learning and innovation, we strive to improve patient outcomes and enhance access to care by:

  • Aligning nursing practices across RWJBarnabas Health
  • Fostering professional development, innovation and research
  • Enhancing collaboration with academic partners
  • Promoting inter-professional education and collaboration
  • Standardizing practices to reduce redundancy and promote consistency

Our objective is supported by the Center for Professional Development, Innovation and Research, which offers a range of educational programs and initiatives designed to support the professional development of nurses and inter-professional teams at all levels. From nursing students to experienced nurses, we provide a variety of resources to help clinicians expand their knowledge and improve their practice. Our team is highly skilled and knowledgeable, and committed to providing ongoing opportunities to practice, learn, and grow professionally.

We are excited to be a part of the future of nursing and to help shape the health care landscape of New Jersey and beyond!
