All winners were notified.
Since the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic, hospitals have been facing a labor shortage and a massive influx of patients. The Nurses for Our Future Scholarship program was an important step designed to recruit and retrain nursing and health care professionals to serve in NYSRNs which are most in need.
The Nurses for Our Future program was run through SUNY and CUNY and was used to recruit and retrain nursing and health care professionals, with tuition completely covered. Chosen students will be able to complete their programs with a flexible schedule, either part-time or full-time.
This effort incentivized people active or interested in the health care field to upskill their career path and advance their education through the SUNY or CUNY system.
