Immaculata University has been awarded $45,220 from the Independence Blue Cross  Foundation (Foundation) for the Nurses for Tomorrow Undergraduate/Graduate Scholarship Program.  The Nurses for Tomorrow is one of the Foundation’s many programs that leads solutions for a healthier community.  The program recognizes the integral role of nurses in the health care system and supports nursing education to help increase the number of nurses pursuing faculty roles or clinical practice.

The Nurses for Tomorrow scholarship grants are by invitation and serve institutions and student recipients in the five county area supported by the Foundation in southeastern PA. The undergraduate scholarship grant of $23,040 will be distributed to scholarship applicants who are juniors and seniors in the pre-licensure nursing program.  The graduate scholarship grant of $22,180 will be awarded to applicants in their final year of graduate education.

The Independence Blue Cross Foundation is a charitable, private foundation, whose mission is leading solutions for a healthier community.  Immaculata has been a recipient of the  nursing scholarships since its conception in 2004 as the Independence Blue Cross Nurse Scholars Program.

Presently, Immaculata University’s Division of Nursing educates one of the largest groups of nursing students in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  Immaculata’s Division of Nursing includes three programs: a four-year pre-licensure degree leading to a BSN; a RN to BSN degree for registered nurses seeking to obtain a BSN degree; and a graduate degree leading to a MSN.
