Shalhevet kids raise funds for Israel
(Page 2 - Previous Page)In collaboration with the Jewish Home for the Aging's new Annenberg School of Nursing, which will train licensed vocational nurses, JFLA is trying to combat California's nursing crunch. The state ranks 49th nationally in nurses per capita, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, with a shortage that is expected to grow 29 percent by 2020.
The Brandman Foundation Loan Fund for Nursing Students was funded by a $250,000 donation from the Saul Brandman Foundation, which has also supported the Brandman Research Institute at the Jewish Home for the Aging and the Saul & Joyce Brandman Breast Center at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
