New York governor announces 1,000 nursing student tuition program coverage winners 

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul named 1,000 winners of the "Nurses for Our Future" Scholarship Program, a program aimed to bolster the state's healthcare workforce, Aug. 4.

Winners will receive tuition to earn an associate degree in nursing or Bachelor of Science in nursing at a two-year or four-year State University of New York or City University of New York college or university. Ms. Hochul first announced the initiative Nov. 18. 

"Nurses have always been invaluable to the health care system, but throughout the pandemic, they proved time and time again the lengths they were willing to go to protect New Yorkers and save lives," Ms. Hochul said. "New York is proud of our nurses, and this scholarship will go a long way in strengthening the workforce with individuals who are ready to begin their education and training."
