New MSN Scholarship
MSN Cohorts

MacNeal’s Department of Nursing expanded its investment in the professional development of nurses, thanks to the efforts of Susan Morby, Director of Professional Practice, and Angela Skalla, CNO, who received a grant through the Illinois Workforce Investment Act. The grant money is earmarked to help pay for 25 nurses to complete their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degrees, and 20 nurses to acquire their Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degrees through MacNeal’s partnership with Lewis University. Those in the MSN program have signed contracts that they will teach at least two semesters within the two years following their graduation as a solution to the nursing teacher shortage and as a way to serve their community.
