Bloomfield College Receives Grant from the Partners for Health Foundation

Bloomfield College Nursing Students

By Alicia Cook

Bloomfield College has received a $150,000 grant from the Partners for Health Foundation to support junior and senior nursing students. The Partners for Health Foundation Nursing Scholarship Fund will be dispersed over five years to students who have demonstrated academic excellence and a commitment to successfully completing their education.

“In choosing to assist Bloomfield College nursing students, the Partners for Health Foundation is lifting a financial burden and helping future nurses from one of the best programs in the state achieve their dreams,” said Jackie Bartley, Vice President for Institutional Advancement.

The Frances M. McLaughlin Division of Nursing at Bloomfield College boasts the second highest NCLEX passing rate in the state and was recently ranked the third best nursing program in New Jersey by RegisteredNursing.org. Nursing programs were assessed on several factors that represent how well a program supports students toward licensure and beyond including analyzing past and present NCLEX-RN pass-rates, weighted by year.

“As a member of the Bloomfield College Board of Trustees, I am ecstatic to learn the Partners for Health Foundation is providing funding toward our nursing students, which will help them reach their full potential,” said Jim Axelrod, Senior National Correspondent for CBS News.  “I often refer to Bloomfield College as an ‘on ramp.’ The College is designed to make sure as many people can gain access to a college degree as possible. It’s not just economic security, but emotional security, which the Partners for the Health Foundation is helping us provide with this grant.”

Pam Scott, Executive Director of Partners for Health, said, “Scholarship recipients will be able to focus on their academics rather than on the economics of paying for college. We are proud to support their dream of becoming a nurse.”
