Nursing Excellence

Your support ensures that Bon Secours nurses receive the education and training they need to provide exceptional care and meet the challenges ahead as they serve on the front line of health care.

Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing
Since 1961, the College of Nursing has educated and prepared more than 2,100 nurses for successful careers. Your donations to the College provide funding for student scholarships, faculty support, program innovation and outstanding facilities for teaching and learning, including a planned expansion to Westhampton to accommodate increased enrollment in a world-class learning environment to take nursing education into the future.

Forensic Nursing
Specially trained forensic nurses provide compassionate care, healing and justice to child and adult victims of abuse or violence. Your generosity allows them to receive the certifications and continuing education they require so that they can meet victims’ physical and emotional needs, collect evidence and offer expert witness testimony in court. Available 24 hours a day, the team of 10 dedicated forensic nurses respond to nearly 2,000 service calls, as well as serve on multiple response teams in the community, train with law enforcement experts and the military, and lead community lectures on sexual assault and interpersonal violence.

$300,000 was secured for scholarships for future nurses and more than $170,000 supported training and education for practicing nurses in our hospitals.

Ten dedicated forensic nurses fielded nearly 2,000 service calls.
