New Fellowship Established in Psychiatric Nursing

The Morton K. and Jane Blaustein Foundation has endowed a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON). The Blaustein Fellowship provides funding for promising scholars to conduct research that advances the mental health and wellbeing of individuals and families in hospital or community settings.

Deborah Gross, DNSc, RN, FAAN, the JHUSON Leonard and Helen R. Stulman Endowed Chair in Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing, will provide mentorship for the Blaustein Fellow. “This endowment from the Blaustein Foundation will go a long way toward training the next generation of mental health nurses,” says Gross. “I am looking forward to working with a bright new researcher interested in the treatment or prevention of mental illness symptoms.”

With an emphasis on multidisciplinary and collaborative research approaches, the Blaustein Fellow will also receive mentorship from other faculty from the School of Nursing and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in the School of Medicine. The fellowship comes with an annual stipend ranging from $35,000 – $51,000 (depending on experience), annual tuition up to $1,000, and an annual fund for research-related expenses.
