Help Our Future Nurses
Provide assistance to overcome financial hardships

Often times, unexpected life events occur and may impact nursing students’ ability to finish a semester or even complete their education.
When you give to the College of Nursing Student Hardship Fund, you provide financial assistance to nursing students who are experiencing genuine and unavoidable difficulties that could not have been predicted at the start of their time at the university.


A senior nursing student would not have been able to finish her last two semesters without aid from this fund. “My education from The Ohio State College of Nursing has allowed me to see that I will have more autonomy in the care of patients in order to provide them with the best care possible as a future acute care pediatric nurse practitioner. I pray that someday I am in a position where I too can donate to the Student Hardship Fund to help others as I have been helped.”


Your generosity today will alleviate the financial burdens our students face and empower them to take advantage of learning opportunities at the college, across campus and around the world to become the healthcare leaders of tomorrow.


Give to help the next generation of Buckeye Nurses.
