Addressing the Nursing Shortage

Back to Articles

The Foundation has awarded a grant to the UofSC College of Nursing to create a Nursing Faculty Fellows Pipeline Program.

“The number of qualified nurse faculty candidates has limited the ability for nursing schools in South Carolina to grow. By supporting those teaching our future nursing workforce we will be able to increase the number of nurses in our state overall, aiming to address the current shortage.” – Erika Kirby, executive director of the BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina Foundation.
