Recipients honored by organization representatives
The Suncoast Nursing Action Coalition (SNAC) has awarded 22 scholarships totaling $74,000 “to strengthen the region¹s nursing workforce and boost the number of nursing school instructors training students on the Suncoast,” the coalition has announced.
“The scholarships are part of a grassroots plan to develop a robust pipeline of well-educated nurses to replace a wave of retiring nurses and ensure continued access to safe, high quality care on the Suncoast,” a news release explains.
Many of the recipients gathered Wednesday, Aug. 15, to meet donors who made the funding possible and share personal stories about how the funding is helping them achieve their dreams of a nursing career, the release added.
