Big boost for nursing education

Big boost for nursing education

Providence St. Mary Foundation recently received the largest stock donation in the history of the hospital.

The donation made in 2015, which amounted to over $519K, will be used to support nursing education. Betty Lou, the donor, expressed a sincere interest in creating incentives for nurses to achieve higher education. Because of Betty Lou's generosity, three areas of nursing education will be impacted: a virtual nursing library, a learning lab, and nursing scholarships.

Director of Clinical Excellence, Gloria Peak emphasized, "As a nurse who is just weeks away from obtaining my doctorate in nursing practice, I personally know the value and impact of education. I have become more confident of my ability to develop systems that promote the highest quality of life for all people in the community. I am grateful to work at a ministry that has supported me in my educational journey. I hope to mentor other nurses who would like to continue with their nursing education. It is our sincere hope that Betty Lou's passion will inspire others to donate."
