NHF Nursing Scholarship Program

The Nursing Working Group of the National Hemophilia Foundation is excited and proud to announce a nursing scholarship program aimed at recruitment and retention for nurses working with the bleeding disorders community. Many of the healthcare institutions that support hemophilia treatment centers (HTCs) are either Magnet™ institutions or are seeking Magnet™ status. One of the core principles of all Magnet™ programs is the progress towards having 80% of registered nurses (RNs) obtain a baccalaureate or graduate degree in nursing by 2020(2). The Magnet Program™ through the American Nurse Credentialing Center (ANCC) recognizes organizations that will serve as the “fount of knowledge and expertise for the delivery of nursing care globally. They will be solidly grounded in core Magnet principles, flexible, and constantly striving for discovery and innovation. They will lead the reformation of health care; the discipline of nursing; and care of the patient, family, and community(1).” For more information, click here.  Deadline for application is May 1, 2017.  Please send your completed application to Morgan Johnson at mjohnson@hemophilia.org

Generation IX Program (Aptevo Theraputics)

The Generation IX Experience launched in 2014 as the first national mentorship program for young people living with hemophilia B. Young adult mentors will participate in a cutting edge leadership training before guiding teens through a powerful week full of challenges and fun in a stately camp facility outside of Portland, Oregon.

TEENS Ages 14-17

The Generation IX Project was designed for you. You’re looking for the next adventure, the next challenge. You’re craving an experience beyond the classroom and the routine. There are others like you, teens and young adults that will band together to learn how to do more, learn more, experience more, and be more than they thought possible. This is your chance to do something profoundly different from the everyday.


The Generation IX Project cannot happen without you. This is your opportunity to escape the norms of the everyday, and pursue a challenge that will change the face of leadership in the hemophilia B community. The Generation IX Project is a call to action for young adults that live with hemophilia B who want to put their skills to the test in an immersive mentorship program. You will travel to a camp facility tucked into a temperate rainforest just outside of Portland, Oregon. There, you will meet your Instructor Team, a group of leadership and team building professionals with years of experience in the outdoor education field and the bleeding disorder

community. They will guide you through several days of experiential training in interpersonal skill development, finding your personal leadership style, and group dynamics as you learn and live with a group of other motivated mentors. This is all preparation for when you help deliver a challenging and meaningful residential program for a group of teens.
