Center for Excellence in Nursing

The Center for Excellence in Nursing was established to advance nursing education, recognition and retention. The program targets the following specific needs:

  • Honoring nurses. If someone provided you and your family with exceptional care during your recent hospital stay, please consider making a contribution in their honor. Your tax-deductible gift will not only let your chosen nurse know how much you appreciate the care they provided, but will also support the outstanding level of care our community has come to expect. To make a donation, call the Foundation Office at 352.323.5500.

  • Enhancing education. The Center for Excellence in Nursing offers scholarships for hospital employees who desire to become a nurse or who wish to advance in their nursing career. The program includes onsite and offsite training in conjunction with local colleges and universities.

    To apply, complete the application and letter of agreement and return to the Foundation Office at 701 N. Palmetto Street, Suite G, Leesburg, FL 34748 no later than March 31, 2020.

  • Celebrating nurses. To celebrate our nurses each year, the Center for Excellence in Nursing hosts a banquet during National Nurses Week. The banquet includes the announcement of our annual scholarship recipients and Values in Action award winners.

To make a donation to the Center for Excellence in Nursing, please contact the Foundation Office at 352.323.5500.
