ELKHORN, Neb., November 13, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Fusion has announced a new scholarship program, Compassion in Care – A Fusion Scholarship, aiming to assist students pursuing their Bachelor of Science in nursing. The application is open now and will close in March 2024. Ten recipients will be awarded $5,000 and will be matched with a Fusion mentor who will provide guidance while they attend nursing school.
“We know there is a staffing shortage, but we don’t want to just point that out. Fusion wants to be part of the solution, and one piece of that is encouraging more young people to choose careers in healthcare,” said Chief Clinical Officer Amber Barna, MSN, RN. “We want to be opening doors for nursing students and cheer for them along the way.”
The scholarship will be renewable for up to four years and is open to students in all stages of their nursing degree. Fusion created this program to help alleviate the burden of tuition costs and allow students to focus on their studies and clinical experience.
“We have a team of nurses here at Fusion that know exactly how hard it is to get through nursing school,” said Community Engagement Manager Jill Adkins. “When developing the Compassion in Care scholarship program, we knew it needed to be a substantial amount to really help clear their mind of the burden of loans or payments while they try to focus on learning to care for patients.”
Fusion and its two business units, Fusion Medical Staffing and Fusion Workforce Solutions, exist to solve the challenges in the healthcare industry, including a lack of transparency, challenging work conditions, and burnout among healthcare professionals.
