At Banner Boswell and Banner Del E. Webb medical centers, all nurses are required to have their BSN, Bachelor of Science in Nursing. That requires individuals to take additional courses to achieve this level of education. Our Scholarships for Nursing Education initiatives help alleviate this financial burden, so we can continue to support superior health care in the West Valley.
By donating to this initiative, you can help continue to award scholarships to dedicated members of the staff at Banner Boswell and Banner Del E. Webb medical centers. With the help of scholarships, nurses can further their education to provide the very best in medical care for our community. Studies show that patient-care experience significantly improves with a higher-educated workforce, including lower mortality rates and fewer medical errors.
In 2016, we were able to provide 78 incredible individuals the opportunity to continue their nursing education. In 2018, 44 scholarships were provided. Moving forward, we need your help, so we can continue to provide financial support to qualified individuals in our community.
