SALINE HEALTH SYSTEMS’ INVESTMENT TO GROW NURSING STAFF
The present nursing shortage is still prevalent but the issue cannot hamper numerous institutions to find ways to stop it.
In a report, Saline Health System partnering with the University of Arkansas at Little Rock for a scholarship program called Pathway to increase its nursing staff.
In connection, twenty students will receive a $5,000 loan over the course of their education at UA-Little Rock.
Then, graduates can work at Saline Health while taking the exam to become a registered nurse (RN).
On this development, a Saline Memorial patient was so impressed with the care she received, that she, herself, is going back to school to become a nurse.
"I think its going to be a great opportunity to work in my own community and help my own people that I live around," said Frankie Castillo.
Castillo is part of the first group of students selected for the Pathway program this coming fall.
Erudite Nursing Institute™ is glad that more health systems are partnering with nursing institutes to attract more students, with an opportunity to work at those health institutes while taking the exam to become a registered nurse.
