Suncoast Nursing Action Coalition

SNAC Scholarships Strengthen Nursing Workforce

Our regional coalition of the FL-AC, the Suncoast Nursing Action Coalition awarded 14 scholarships totaling $50,000 this month in a continuing effort to strengthen the region’s nursing workforce.  The annual scholarships are part of SNAC’s prolonged action plan to develop a pipeline of baccalaureate-prepared nurses and ensure continued safe, high-quality care on the Suncoast.  Jan Mauck, (SNAC co- lead & FL-AC Advisory Council member), has been instrumental in this grassroots effort building collaborative partnerships to expand BSN nursing programs in the area and mentoring over 1000 students.  Since 2016, SNAC has awarded $264,000 in nursing scholarships.
