CareFirst gives $1 million to help reduce nursing shortage
from Baltimore Business Journal
CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield is investing another $1 million in a nursing education program aimed at increasing the state's supply of nurses and nurse educators. CareFirst's Project RN gives nursing students stipends of up to $80,000 to put toward a masters or doctorate degree. In exchange, recipients commit to spending at least three years as a nursing teacher at a school in Maryland, Virginia or Washington, D.C. The program is intended to help address an anticipated nursing shortage while also ensuring a steady supply of educators to help train new nurses.
