Hospital Auxiliary Donates $40,000 in Scholarships To Support Area Nursing Students
The Hospital Auxiliary recently presented $40,000 in scholarships for area nursing and health care students. These scholarships are important in attracting new students and helping to address the shortage of nurses in the Lowcountry. Over the past 30 years, the Auxiliary has donated approximately $650,000 in scholarships through proceeds from its Annual Hospital Auxiliary Invitational Golf Tournament held at Harbour Town and Wexford.
The nursing and allied health program at the Technical College of the Lowcountry was presented a check for $18,000. Expansion of the health sciences campus combined with growth of existing programs and development of new programs will allow the college to accept more students. These programs are renowned by business and industry and considered to be best in class. These accolades have spurred the overwhelming interest in their health science programs.
