Extraordinary Leaders

We are extremely fortunate that our community has attracted nurse leaders of the highest caliber, dedicating their careers to saving lives. Here’s how the Hoag Promise Campaign will support them in their important work.

  • Leadership Fund – A leadership fund would support Hoag’s chief nursing officer’s efforts in facilitating the deployment of critically needed resources to maintain and elevate the levels of patient care delivery at Hoag. The funds would go to support innovation, education and research as well as crucial outcome analysis to continually improve care.
  • Nursing Professorships – Provides staffing for on-site Family Nurse Practitioner program, BSN and MSN offerings in partnership with Cal State University Long Beach.
  • Nursing Scholarships – Nursing scholarships will have a direct impact by assisting Hoag to increase the number of BSN-or-higher certified nurses at Hoag to the recommended 80 percent by the Institute of Medicine.
