Description



S.H.E. Squared is a non-profit 501c3 organization that seeks to empower and motivate women of all ages and backgrounds in the areas of social responsibility, health and wellness, education and economics. Providing educational scholarships are paramount to the mission of the organization. Our “Future Female Leaders” scholarship offers financial assistance to first year college students in all areas of academia. This year we are incorporating a new branch of our scholarship fund, the “Washington-Nixon Nursing Scholarship”, to assist with the matriculation of student nurses into the nursing profession.

This fund will contribute to decreasing the nursing shortage in the Houston and surrounding areas. The healthcare industry is prominent in Houston, so any change in the healthcare industry will affect our metro area. The nursing shortage countrywide has a profound affect on Houston’s hospitals and doctors offices as the population increases and new initiatives are being introduced. The American Nurses Association estimates the shortage of registered nurses to reach a high of 800,000. The Institute of Medicine calls for 80% of nurses to have a minimum of a BSN by 2020. This means we will need approximately 640,000 registered nurses to reach the 80% goal. Nursing impacts the mission of S.H.E. Squared as nurses assist by lending their voices to the political changes affecting healthcare.

Nurses are at the frontline of health and wellness in all areas of healthcare. Nurses are innovative with developing evidence-based practice that drives care for the population. Nursing is a sound profession that provides financial stability for individual and family households. The “Washington-Nixon Nursing Scholarship” will be offered to nursing students who are single-mothers with a financial need, and can demonstrate academic success. By Nurturing Through Giving, you or your organization will assist S.H.E. Squared in our mission to support the nursing profession shortage and contribute to the call for quality healthcare in America. Nursing is still rated one of the most trusted professions by the general public…
