Developing Essential Nurses

EHA’s 6 nursing schools serve a variety of purposes. For the 19 hospitals and numerous community health projects, having a fresh supply of new nursing graduates each year is like a breath of essential fresh air.

For the students, attending a nursing school is often a pathway out of poverty. Nurse graduates are frequently able to help support their parents and siblings as well as themselves.

Obtaining a nursing degree brings respect and status for these young, often poor, people. Many of EHA’s nursing leadership and faculty positions are filled with graduates of EHA’s own nursing schools.
