Baltimore-UMSON Awarded 'Who Will Care?' Grant

The University of Maryland School of Nursing, Baltimore, was recently awarded a three-year, $250,000 grant from the Who Will Care? Fund for Nurse Education. Through this award, the school will offer funding to newly admitted, first-generation students enrolled in the traditional BSN program.

Established by a group of stakeholders including the Maryland Hospital Association and healthcare and academic leaders, Who Will Care? is an extensive fundraising campaign and grant program designed to end Maryland's nursing shortage. The program is expected to help double the number of RN graduates across the state.

"As healthcare needs continue to escalate and current nurses inch closer to retirement, there is a great urgency to prepare tomorrow's nurses," said Jane M. Kirschling, PhD, RN, FAAN, dean. "On behalf of all the residents of Maryland, I am truly grateful that Who Will Care? had the vision to develop a plan to address this serious issue and that our school was selected to receive funding to help educate nurses for the workforce of the future."
