Part of succeeding in academics requires being equipped with the tools necessary to succeed. Unfortunately, many of our nursing students are unable to afford these. The current pandemic has only heightened the financial burden of costs associated with basic school supplies, textbooks being a critical one. Serving as the foundational education tool, textbooks are the gateway to successful learning.
"I am a first generation student, and I am responsible for financing my education on my own. I am grateful to be a recipient of a College of Nursing scholarship. I used the scholarships to pay for items including textbooks, access cards, and other school supplies in general. It definitely has helped me in terms of stress because I don’t have to worry about finding the money to pay for those items on top of transitioning into my first real semester as an upper division student." - Daisy Noyola, BSN junior

"I feel that nurses are in unique positions in which they are able to help care for patients both emotionally and physically. Receiving a financial scholarship has not only assisted with tuition/lab fees, but it has allowed me to pay for required and recommended textbooks that are used as supplements to class instruction." - Sierra Foster, BSN senior
Suggested donation amounts include $100 / $200 / $1,000. Donations of $1,000 or more will automatically enroll you as a member of the Dean’s Circle, where you will receive VIP recognition at every College of Nursing event, special recognition on the website and newsletters, and the opportunity to take part in roundtable talks with Nursing faculty and staff.
