Nurses assume one of the most important roles in society.

They form an integral part of the health care system from the second the patient enters it. They are the first line of care, assuring that patients have the support and information they need. Unfortunately, our country has experienced a shortage of nurses for decades and with an aging population, the problem will only get worse.

Med-Sense Guaranteed Association is dedicated to improving the health, diet, and fitness of our 100k+ members. As part of our focus on health, MSGA seeks opportunities to help students in nursing bridge the financial gap that might prevent them from graduating.

It is with an awareness of the true difference that nurses can make in people’s lives that MSGA has provided St. Louis University with a gift in the amount of $25,000 to go toward the Med-Sense Guaranteed Association Nursing Scholarship Fund. Additionally, the $25,000 gift has been matched 100 percent by Go Further, the University’s scholarship matching program. As a result, a total benefit of $50,000 will be provided for helping nursing school students.

With this gift, MSGA aims to provide assistance for those who want to enter the nursing profession but find fiscal barriers lie in their way. The scholarship fund will help worthy nursing school students reach graduation and go on to help countless future patients.
