Our History

NurseTRUST is a 501(c)(3) membership organization created in 2017 by passionate alumni members of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Executive Nurse Fellows program. The RWJF Executive Nurse Fellows program was a three year, world-class leadership development experience to enhance the effectiveness of nurse leaders to impact the U.S. health care system. With a twenty year history, it was administrated by UCSF for 12 years, and 8 years by the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®). NurseTRUST seeks to harness the collective power of over 300 RWJF ENF alumni to carry the incredible experience and legacy of RWJF ENF forward through our bold mission.
