Nurse.com, the leading healthcare brand of OnCourse Learning, is supporting the efforts of the Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare by serving as a Co-Chair Benefactor Sponsor at the 10th Anniversary Gala Celebration on Friday, March 18, at The Rainbow Room in New York City.
Since its establishment in 2006, the center has partnered with schools of nursing in 50 states, supported more than 1,000 Jonas Nurse Leaders Scholars and provided more than $25 million in funding to nurses pursuing graduate degrees.
“At this tremendous milestone, it is an honor to celebrate with those who share our vision for and our dedication to America’s nurses,” said Donald Jonas, who co-founded the center with Barbara Jonas, his wife. “These achievements could only have been realized with our partners and supporters. To Nurse.com and all those who have joined our cause, we are deeply grateful.”
“Over the years, numerous Jonas Nurse Scholars have shared stories with Nurse.com about how they pursued graduate degrees and enriched the lives of so many thanks to the generosity of the Jonas Center,” said Janice Petrella Lynch, MSN, RN, Nurse Editor/Nurse Executive for Nurse.com. “These outstanding nurses hope to pay it forward by helping those in need and making the world a better place.”
Representatives from Nurse.com and OnCourse Learning will be among 300 supporters and scholars at the Jonas Center gala, which also will serve as a celebratory dinner and awards ceremony.
Honorees being recognized at the gala for enhancing the nursing profession through professional and charitable endeavors are Johnson & Johnson, which launched its Campaign for Nursing’s Future in 2002 to address the most profound nursing shortage in U.S. history, and retired Lt. Gen. Patricia D. Horoho, RN, who in 2011 became the first woman and first nurse to be named U.S. Army Surgeon General.
“Nurse.com and OnCourse Learning provide invaluable resources to the nursing community and the Jonas Center is thankful for this support,” said Darlene Curley, MS, RN, CEO, Jonas Family Fund and Executive Director, Jonas Center. “We look forward to continuing our collective efforts in the coming years as we work side-by-side in our aligned missions to advance the nursing profession.”
