SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Saint Joseph Health System has unveiled a new scholarship program!

Saint Joe awarded six students studying nursing at IU South Bend on Thursday. Following graduation, the scholarship winners will commit to working for Saint Joseph Health System for a year.

“This is really supporting the students, in their love and in their profession and as they enter into and transition into the practice of nursing to be able to walk alongside them and support them - it’s just exhilarating,” said Loretta Schmidt, the chief nursing officer.

Officials say they are excited for the students to start and are hopeful this will help with the nursing shortage impacting not only Michiana but the entire U.S.
