The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences Receives Major Gift to Support Academic Scholarships

​The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences is providing scholarships to students who otherwise might not have the ability to pursue a healthcare career. The Christ College received a seven-figure gift from an anonymous donor which will allow it recruit and attract an exceptional and diverse student body.

Twenty scholarships per year in the next five years will be available to prospective students wishing to study nursing at The Christ College. The Summo Commisso Missi scholarships, which translates to ‘highest mission sent’, are worth a total of $40,000, or $10,000 annually, for first-year students enrolling in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at The Christ College.

The scholarship program will enable The Christ College to strategically recruit students in broader, more diverse communities throughout our region.

“We are actively recruiting the best and brightest students in the region and now have a greater chance of reaching students in communities with a more diverse demographic,” said Gary Pack, Ed. D., president of The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences. “These scholarships are enabling us to increase our competitiveness in the areas of healthcare, particularly in the nursing field, making us a first choice institution among high school students.”

By actively recruiting students in a broader range of communities, The Christ College has already seen a significant increase in student diversity. Students at The Christ College receive a superior education while gaining invaluable clinical experience at The Christ Hospital.

Applications were available for students beginning March 1.
