Campaign Goal and Funding Priorities
The School seeks to raise a total of $100,000 over eighteen months, ending on June 30, 2017, to support the following fundraising priorities.

A. Global Education and Service Learning Experiences
Gifts support the cost of travel for nursing students to participate in international university exchange programs, and on medical mission trips to developing and impoverished communities around the globe.

In the SLCHS students have the opportunity to work with computerized patients that display physiological changes which simulate human patient response to a variety of nursing interventions. Students learn and practice nursing in a safe, interactive and realistic setting, with the benefit of ongoing faculty assessment and mentoring, and have the opportunity to build the clinical knowledge, skills and confidence they need to contribute to and succeed in the nursing workforce of today and tomorrow.
