There is a critical shortage of nurses. According to a Feb. 2016 article in the Atlantic Monthly, “the U.S. has been dealing with a nursing deficit of varying degrees for decades, but today – due to an aging population, the rising incidences of chronic disease, an aging workforce and the limited capacity of nursing schools – this shortage is on the cusp of becoming a crisis, one with worrying implications for patients and health care providers alike.”
Simply put, we need to invest in nurses. As a ministry of education, it starts with our students, faculty, staff and alumni. Through the Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation, we can build our resources right here in central Virginia. Advancing the mission of the college requires scholarship support; faculty development and program provision, but we can’t do it alone. We invite our friends, alumni and community to join us in this endeavor.
Your philanthropic investment in the Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing makes it possible to expand educational opportunities for students and help them to graduate without crushing debt. Your gifts help strengthen the ability of our faculty to advance knowledge and to help us contribute to the overall health of our community.
