Nursing students in their second semester at Anoka-Ramsey Community College Cambridge Campus each received a $1,000 scholarship this school year due to the generosity of the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation which donated $25,000 to the campus foundation.
This marks the 10th year that Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation has made a donation of this magnitude to nursing students at the Cambridge Campus. Registered nursing is one of the top ten fastest growing jobs.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, new registered nurses are expected to fill more than a million job openings nationwide this decade.
The registered nursing program at the Cambridge Campus was initiated in January 2003 in response to Minnesota’s nursing shortage and to provide area health care workers an opportunity to continue training to become registered nurses and stay in their own communities. The college also offers the nursing program at its Coon Rapids Campus.
