Cumberland University announced today that the seventh annual Notes for Nurses fundraiser will be held at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 26, 2019 at the Wilson County Expo Center. The fundraiser supports Cumberland University’s Rudy School of Nursing and Health Professions.
The proceeds of this event will support simulation equipment to train students and the Nursing Advisory Council Scholarship, awarded annually to students with the greatest need.
Dean of the Rudy School of Nursing and Health Professions, Dr. Mary Bess Griffith, said this event is an excellent display of the connection and support between the community and university.
“The Rudy School of Nursing and Health Professions has been incredibly grateful for the generous support of the Wilson County community over the past seven years of hosting Notes for Nurses,” Griffith said. “We extend an invitation to this year’s Notes for Nurses to all Wilson County citizens who share an interest in raising scholarship funds for individuals with a passion to make an impact in the field of nursing and healthcare.”
Cumberland University, The Rudy School of Nursing and Health Professions and the Notes for Nurses committee would like to thank this year’s top sponsors: Frank and Cindy Rudy, Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital and the Family of Dr. Joe and Pat Bryant.
Over the past six years, proceeds from this event have helped the Rudy School fund the purchase of simulation equipment and to create a new simulation lab at McFarland Hall. Funds have also supported the Nursing Advisory Council Scholarship for students that may otherwise not get the chance to pursue their dreams in the healthcare industry.
Tickets are $75 for general admission and $50 for Cumberland University alumni. Tables are also available for purchase, $800 for a VIP table and $600 for a general table.
