Monday, February 15, 2016
The College of St. Scholastica has received a new grant of $10,000 from the Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare. Matched by $10,000 of its own monies, it will fund the scholarship of a doctoral nursing student beginning in 2016.
As a recipient of the Jonas Center grant, The College of St. Scholastica is part of a national effort to stem the faculty shortage and prepare the next generation of nurses – critical as a clinical nurse shortage is anticipated just as an aging population requires care.
“The College of St. Scholastica is grateful for the support of the Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare,” said Larry Goodwin, president of St. Scholastica. “This award will enable us to prepare a greater number of future nursing faculty, who are essential to meeting the nation’s growing need for well-educated nurses.”
