On this day in observance of International Nurses Day commemorating the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing practice, Health Carousel Philippines announces a commitment to support ten nursing school faculty members with scholarships for Master’s or Doctoral degrees in nursing. This pledge will fund tuition, books, and other related fees at the selected partner nursing schools. The scholarships are part of Health Carousel Philippines’ Light the Way initiative to support ethical and sustainable nurse recruitment, ideals to which the POEA-licensed agency’s US partner, Health Carousel, LLC, is similarly committed.
Lighting the Way
“Investing in nursing’s future is a tradition at Health Carousel, which has provided $10 million in nurse education funding since its founding in 2004, with award recipients throughout the years now serving as nursing leaders and educators in the U.S. and internationally,” stated Earl Dalton, Chief Nursing Officer at Health Carousel. “Working with Chamberlain University is a new way for us to help address critical workforce issues that exist in the nursing industry today, and we couldn’t be more excited.”
Health Carousel and Chamberlain are committed to looking for ways to solve the critical shortage of nurses throughout the U.S., and this new agreement brings together two organizations dedicated to this initiative. Chamberlain was selected as a preferred education provider due to its high-quality online nursing programs that are ideally suited for full-time nurses treating patients across the U.S.
“With more than 130 years of excellence in healthcare education, we are committed to helping employer partners provide access to high-quality education to their employees, encouraging lifelong learning for nurses and building a pipeline for the future,” Chamberlain President Karen Cox, PhD, RN, FACHE, FAAN, said. “Collaborating with Health Carousel not only is designed to expand access to advanced nursing degrees, it also supports superior quality of patient care for the communities they serve and prolonging nursing careers to fill a large need for the profession.”
