Immaculata University Division of Nursing is pleased to announce that 21 undergraduate and two graduate Nursing students have received scholarships from the Independence Blue Cross Nurses for Tomorrow scholarship program.

Nurses for Tomorrow specifically focuses on the goal of retention of students throughout their years of study. Its focus helps challenge the applicant to look beyond their capacity as nurses toward the role of nurse leaders. 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.
