Four sites -Hawai'i, Minnesota, Texas, and Massachusetts - were selected by the NLN to participate in the National League for Nursing Vision for Nursing Education: Phase II Project, a one-year initiative focused on community-based nursing education. This initiative, for the year 1995-1996, was funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and coordinated by a national project director. Each site received $100,000 to be used to develop curricular models for community-based nursing. Other components of the initiative as it took place in Hawai'i - an exploration of regulatory issues regarding community-based nursing education and a description of the process of change - are reported elsewhere .
