Home Instead and NLN Foundation for Nursing Education to Award Scholarships to Nurses Furthering Geriatric Education

For the fourth consecutive year, Home Instead and the NLN Foundation for Nursing Education will provide $1,000 scholarships each to five nursing students committed to a career providing high-quality care for older adults. The fund will contribute toward growing the field of healthcare professionals dedicated to the geriatric population.

The COVID-19 pandemic underscored how vital the nation’s nurses are as they provided quality care to one of the most vulnerable populations. While the pandemic brought on a unique set of challenges, nurses continued to advocate for aging adults and navigate increased safety precautions for patients in different care settings.

Intensifying this growing need, the number of adults 65 and older is expected to double by the year 2050. As a result of this shift, aging adults will account for a core portion of the healthcare system, requiring medical teams – especially nurses – to be well trained in how to treat and care for this population.

“Our mission at Home Instead is to expand the world’s capacity to care for adults,” said Jeff Huber, CEO of Home Instead. “We’re incredibly proud to partner with an organization that supports the education of those who will provide care to the aging population, now and in the future.”

The NLN Foundation for Nursing Education scholarship application period is open until May 21. Applicants will be notified by the end of July and awardees will be recognized at the NLN Summit in the fall of 2021. For more information, candidates can visit the NLN Foundation website.
