Two nurse leaders from the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) College of Nursing have been selected to the 2014 cohort of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Executive Nurse Fellows (ENF) program, a three-year advanced leadership program for nurses who aspire to lead and shape health care locally and nationally. Debbie Chatman Bryant, DNP, RN, and Rebecca Freeman, PhD, RN, PMP, both clinical faculty for the MUSC College of Nursing, have been named two of only 20 RWJF Executive Nurse Fellows for 2014. Bryant and Freeman join more than 200 nurse leaders who have participated in the ENF program since it began in 1998. This diverse group will participate in a three-year, world-class leadership development program that is enhancing the effectiveness of nurse leaders who are working to improve the nation's health care system. Approximately 100 applicants from around the world vied for spots as a nurse fellow this year.
