As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, the work of nurses and other healthcare professionals has been nothing short of heroic.
Risking their own health and often working with insufficient personal protective equipment, nurses have saved countless lives, working tirelessly to stem the tide of the pandemic.
Despite this, as hospitals cut back elective procedures and non-emergency operations, many nurses saw cuts in pay and benefits.
At the same time, nursing faces the largest talent shortage of any profession in the US, and the demand for additional nurses is expected to continue growing faster than any other profession, a situation that leads to higher rates of errors, morbidity, and mortality.
This grant will go to an aspiring or current nurse to aid with the cost of their tuition or student loans. All levels of nursing education are eligible for this award, including current nursing students, recent nursing graduates, and aspiring nursing students.
Students or recent graduates across any nursing specialty are eligible. While not required, applicants from lower-paying nursing specialties will be preferred.
Why did you choose to go into nursing? What’s a time when you were proud of yourself that is (or will be) representative of your ability as a nurse?
