Leaders in Care
The USF College of Nursing has launched its second annual giving campaign, Leaders in Care, to advance the education of our student Bull Nurses and provide funding for a tangible project that faculty wouldn't be able to obtain otherwise.
Through Leaders in Care, we invite you to join us in innovating the student experience for tomorrow’s nurse leaders.
Last year, the USF College of Nursing developed a partnership with the Tampa Police Department and piloted the Peds to Succeed program with students who attend an after school program at The R.I.C.H. Houses, offering a safe haven for at-risk children in Sulphur Springs and Robles Park. This year's featured project, EnRICHed Families: Improving Health Outcomes for At-Risk Communities, is an expansion on that partnership.
EnRICHed Families is a student-centered, faculty-led intervention program where nursing students assess and address health needs of older adults in the same community. Through this expansion and ongoing collaboration, our Bull Nurses get a view of the world outside the textbook and medical center walls while creating joy and opportunity to multiple generations. Your gift will not only positively impact these patients in need, but additionally, their families and the community at large. Therefore, you have the ability to enhance the education of the next wave of nursing and health care professionals, improving wellness and health outcomes today and in the future.
Sheree Slone BSN '77 and her husband, Frederick Slone, have generously offered to match all gifts up to $15,000, dollar for dollar, to the Leaders in Care program this year. You can double your impact and help innovate student success for Bull Nurses by making your gift today.
