The health care industry keeps nibbling at their staffing shortfalls. This program will offer only 20 scholarships, a drop in the bucket of what is needed:
Schoolcraft College will host signing event with Corewell Health to provide scholarships to nursing students
July 10, 2023
A new partnership will bring together Michigan’s largest health care system and one of Wayne County’s premier institutions of higher education.
Schoolcraft College and Corewell Health will team up to create the Corewell Health RN Scholarship Program, which will provide scholarships to nursing students as well as guaranteed job placement at a local Corewell Health facility.
The Schoolcraft College Foundation will award 20 Corewell Health Nursing Scholarships for the upcoming fall semester, providing up to $8,500 for Schoolcraft College students to use on tuition, books and other educational expenses during the second year of their RN nursing program. Those who receive the scholarship will need to pass the NCLEX examination for licensure and agree to work at a Corewell Health hospital in southeast Michigan for at least two years.
The agreement will be signed by leaders of both institutions at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, July 13 in the Health Sciences Center at Schoolcraft College, 18600 Haggerty Road in Livonia.
“This partnership is a win-win for both our students at Schoolcraft College and for Corewell Health,” said Dr. Glenn Cerny, president of Schoolcraft College. “Not only do our students get assistance with their educational costs as they complete their studies here, they also have the opportunity to then transition to work in one of the state’s most-respected health care systems.”
Graduates will have the opportunity to work at one of Corewell Health’s hospitals in southeast Michigan, with locations in Royal Oak, Troy, Grosse Pointe, Dearborn, Farmington Hills, Taylor, Trenton and Wayne. The health care system will work with students to ensure the best placement post-graduation.
“Partnerships like this one between Corewell Health and Schoolcraft College will help address the ongoing need for nurses and provide eligible students the opportunity to begin their journey into health care as a registered nurse,” said Nancy Susick, Chief Operating Officer, Acute & Post-Acute Care, Corewell Health East.
