Nursing is more than a job — it’s a calling.
The Friends of Nursing Fund
This special fund makes it possible for staff nurses throughout the Baptist Memorial Health Care system to attend seminars, participate in research projects, receive reimbursement for specialty certifications, purchase educational materials, and gain other training opportunities. Gifts to this fund often come from grateful patients, physicians and nurses who wish to honor each other’s birthdays or family members that have died, as well as Baptist Foundation.
In 2018 alone, the Friends of Nursing Fund helped cover certifications for 74 nurses, professional development conference fees for 24 nurses, test preparatory courses for 61 nurses, and certification preparation materials and books for 58 nurses.
Gifts designated for Friends of Nursing will help continue the growth and development of our talented nurses.
