To Help Nurses Get the Education They Deserve, Health Carousel Has Pledged $200,000
In partnership with the Florida Nurses Foundation (FNF), Health Carousel, a leading provider of healthcare staffing solutions, announced a $200,000 commitment over the next three years to support nurse education, practice, and quality patient care through its Health Education Grant Program. The Health Carousel Foundation will award grants to non-profit organizations that provide nursing education to registered nurses (RNs) in Florida. These funds will support state-of-the-art programs to improve the state’s nursing education and patient care quality.
Health Carousel Chief Executive Officer: “By working together on this program, we look to bettering the lives of many nurses.” “We are equally excited about Health Carousel’s commitment to nursing education and quality patient care in Florida,” said FNF Board Chair and Vice President of Nursing at Bayfront Health Brooksville. “The Florida Nurses Foundation is dedicated to ensuring nurses have the tools to provide the best possible care to patients across our great state. We believe that partnerships with organizations like Carousel will help us meet our mission of improving health outcomes for Floridians through nurse education and practice.”
Carousel President and CEO said, “Nurses are the heart and soul of healthcare. They provide a lifeline to patients and their families every day. We are delighted to announce this new commitment to support nurse education and practice in Florida, where we have a significant presence.” $100,000 will be awarded to nursing schools in South Florida for scholarships for undergraduate students pursuing degrees in nursing.
The scholarship program aims to increase the supply of well-trained nurses in Florida and the United States. In addition, $10,000 of this grant will be used for scholarships for graduate students pursuing advanced degrees in nursing as part of their clinical training. $50,000 will be awarded to two nursing schools located in South Florida. “I am pleased to announce this multi-year investment in the nursing profession, which will support a variety of programs and initiatives,” said the CEO of Health Carousel. “We are proud to continue our commitment on this International Nurses Day to impact the lives of healthcare professionals across the globe positively.”
