About the Nurse Faculty Scholars/AJN Mentored Writing Program

This is an annual program to promote mentorship and develop scholarly writing skills among nurses. It was conceived and is sponsored by the 2012–2015 cohort of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Nurse Faculty Scholars Program, in honor of the mentorship they received. This award was created to continue the legacy of mentorship and to support scholarship development for all nurses.


Submissions go through AJN’s peer review process, and if accepted, will be reviewed by the awards committee chaired by Maja Djukic, PhD, RN, assistant professor, New York University College of Nursing in New York City, and a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Nurse Faculty Scholar (2012 – 2015).

Submission for the 2017 awards program is now open until April 1. Details are available here.

    This is a great program that helps students’ writing skills, creates visibility for programs, and promotes collaboration that can extend long beyond a formal program. I’m pleased that AJN is continuing its sponsorship.
