Many, many thanks to the New Mexico Board of Nursing for their support of NMNEC work. The NMBON has provided invaluable professional expertise and financial support for the goals of NMNEC, especially in the early years.


Support for this project in FY12-16 was provided by a grant from Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN), an initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Thank you, APIN, for your financial support, guidance, and encouragement. These funds were made possible because of a partnership with the New Mexico Action Coalition (NMAC). We thank the NMAC for their ongoing support and collaboration.
