Who We Are
The mission of Nurse2nurse is to provide empathic, non-judgmental peer support to all nurses, active or retired, in New Jersey. We are here to inspire, empower, and help every caller find a resolution to whatever challenge they may be facing. We are dedicated to being there for our fellow nurses who have devoted their lives to helping others, and to helping them regain their sense of purpose, reach their full potential, and continue to have a positive impact on the lives of those around them.
Our vision is to provide a community of support to New Jersey nurses of yesterday, today, and tomorrow, as well as their families, that focuses on self-care, resiliency and wellness.
Nurse2Nurse is built on a foundation established by the Rutgers University National Center for Peer Support, which has provided crisis counseling, peer support, and disaster response support to vulnerable communities for decades. The Center has been nationally recognized for expertise in peer support by the American Psychiatric Association and the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health & Traumatic Brain Injury.
Countless numbers of lives across the country have already been positively impacted by the work of the Center, and the numbers continue to rise every day.
Our Team & Services
Nurse2Nurse is made possible thanks to funding from the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund and the New Jersey Nursing Initiative, a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in collaboration with the New Jersey Hospital Association. NJNI sought out partnership with the National Center for Peer Support as the result of over two decades of reputable peer support services for various populations.
