Luthercare is delighted to announce the winners of our 2021 nursing scholarships for graduating high school seniors. We had many wonderful candidates from school districts in Lancaster and Lebanon Counties and awarded $1,000 scholarships to 10 deserving recipients who are pursuing careers in the nursing industry. Now, more than ever, we recognize the need for passionate and dedicated nurses who work tirelessly caring for the people we care about most. We’re so privileged to support future Healthcare Heroes!

The annual nursing scholarships reflect Luthercare’s continuing commitment to quality care and the education of future healthcare professionals. This year, the nursing scholarship committee hosted a small reception at Luther Acres for these bright recipients. It was a great time to connect with them and share about the opportunities that exist in the senior living industry. We wish these students the best of luck on their journeys.
