Adventist Health White Memorial

Los Angeles, California

The goal is to replace the traditional model that the hospital has used to recruit and hire nursing professionals with a long-term strategy that encourages local high school students to pursue nursing careers, help nursing students graduate and pass their licensing exams, and encourage new nursing professionals to remain in their communities by starting their nursing careers at the hospital.

AMOUNT: $450,000
TERM: 24 months

Collaboration

These local students graduate and remain to care for people in their own community. Sharing a common language and culture, as well as local roots helps contribute to a speedier recovery, greater patient satisfaction and higher nurse retention rates.

Collaboration 

in Action

For over 15 years, Adventist Health White Memorial Medical Center has worked in collaboration with TELACU Foundation in East Los Angeles to locally recruit into the nursing profession. The program encourages people who live in the community to work in their community while also providing relevant and culturally competent healthcare to their community.
