SALINE HEALTH SYSTEMS’ INVESTMENT TO GROW NURSING STAFF

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.
