The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education awarded grants to 16 academic institutions nationwide — including $50,000 to the University of Maryland, Baltimore — to boost community-based interprofessional education and practice. The University’s Center for Interprofessional Education provided $50,000 in matching funds to facilitate the project.

The University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) was awarded a $150,000 State Implementation Program (SIP) grant through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and AARP. SIP grants were created to support the implementation of the State Campaign for Action Coalitions of the Institute of Medicine’s recommendations outlined in its 2010 report, "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health."
