What is the Cherokee Uniforms Nursing Scholarship Award?
The DAISY Foundation is committed to spotlighting nurses who are devoted to the job. They feature stories of bravery, heroism, and selflessness. Honorees are then invited to talk about their experiences on the floor and how they have made a difference in the lives of their patients. This is just a small way for patients, family members, and staff to say thank you to the brave nurses that keep our communities healthy.
As a market leader in comfortable, fashion-inspired healthcare apparel, Cherokee Uniforms has always been an enthusiastic supporter of the men and women working in the healthcare industry. That’s why they partnered with the DAISY Foundation to create a special scholarship for nurses, allowing both organizations to extend their reach and increase their impact on the nursing community. This award has already helped 40 healthcare professionals from around the U.S. and abroad pursue the next chapters of their careers, giving up to $2,000 to previous honorees.
Applicants can use this money to obtain their nursing license, earn credits towards their degree, or attend a continuing education conference either virtually or in-person. The pandemic has made it difficult to travel and attend classes in person, but the money can still be used to further their careers without increasing chances of infection.
