Fundraising Priorities


Hoag aims to continue to grow as a health care leader and enable more nurses to assume diverse roles as advanced practice RNs and subspecialty RNs, including nurse practitioners and physician extenders in response to changes in health care delivery. To achieve this adaptability, nurses must continue to seek advanced degrees and training. Hoag supports this goal with education opportunities, so our working nurses can become leaders in their fields and deliver safe, high-quality patient care, now and into the future. Philanthropy is a key component of this mission and will help Hoag not only sustain but exceed the required 80 percent of nurses with a BSN degree or higher to maintain Magnet® status. There are a multitude of ways to support the educational pursuits of Hoag nurses through philanthropy, all of which help ensure Hoag nurses are well-prepared to assume broader roles.
