UC and Health Alliance Partner to Recruit Nurses

Published November 2004

UC College of Nursing and the Health Alliance have entered a three-year agreement to help recruit nurses.

As part of the agreement, the Health Alliance will provide $158,000 annually for three years in salary support for faculty positions at the College of Nursing.

Andrea Lindell, DNSc, RN, dean of the College of Nursing, says the partnership is a win-win for both organizations.

"The money will allow us to hire full-time clinical teaching faculty and offer attractive scholarships to students pursuing a career in nursing," she says. "The Alliance will benefit by having more nurses on staff to treat patients at its six hospitals in the area."

As part of the agreement, the Health Alliance will also give $4,000 scholarships to UC nursing students, who will be required to work in Health Alliance hospitals for 12 months after graduation. The hospital group will also provide a one-time $1,000 supplement to the college for each scholarship awarded to support the nursing program, plus access to hospital training classrooms and clinical units.
