What is Nursing Scholars?

We provide educational and workforce solutions to healthcare and higher education organizations. Nursing Scholars utilizes these capabilities to provide a talent recruitment and sponsorship model that builds a steady pipeline of highly skilled new employees in a low risk way with a focus on forging long-term careers. At a moment when the healthcare system is facing an unprecedented clinical staffing shortage and unsustainable employee turnover, there is a greater need than ever to align the needs of schools and employers for mutual benefit.

Nursing sponsorships change students’ professional and financial trajectories. For Salem, it is a core part of our plan to grow enrollment and increase access to nursing education in our community while building the communities’ capacity for continued growth and wellness.

We work with health systems to identify staffing needs in key positions such as entry level nurses, nurse anesthetists, and a range of allied health positions. Together, we identify a set of higher ed partners to meet these needs. On your behalf, Nursing Scholars works to build university and college partnerships.

Alongside partner schools, we recruit students to join your team. We find ways to drive early engagement, including clinical rotations and other opportunities to immerse future employees in your culture and care model.

Your health system pays nothing until the first day of licensed employment. If a Scholar leaves before their work commitment is complete, you have no further financial or legal obligation.
