The foundation is doing its share to encourage more people to enter the nursing profession but we’d like to do more. Financial barriers can prevent qualified individuals from even applying to nursing school in the first place and yet we know that with an aging population, more and more nurses will be needed in the coming years to improve health outcomes.
Ten nursing scholarships are housed at the foundation, which were established by generous individuals in our community, and each year we seek to grow those funds – and to add more.
At events in December, 2010 and May, 2011, ten students at the Brandywine School of Nursing, the West Chester University and Immaculata University Schools of Nursing, and CAT-Brandywine’s Practical Nursing Program received over $14,000 in scholarship funds and graduation awards.
