The Friends of Nursing Program — supported entirely from Hospital donors since 1989 — provides Virginia Hospital Center nurses with the ability to further their education through conferences, workshops, and specialty training and certification classes.

In 2021, 28 nurses were awarded with continuing education opportunities through the program. It’s yet another example of how our donors are directly contributing to ensuring the Hospital continues to provide the highest quality of care. The nurses and program donors will be recognized throughout the month of October.

“Our nurses put their patients first, connecting with them in a way that is indescribable. I’m proud to be a part of this exceptional team of patient care professionals.”
