Blue Cross NC Announces $1 Million Investment in NCCU (485 hits)

Investment will be used to address access to care and nursing shortages, educational resources and technology

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC) will invest $1 million in North Carolina Central University's (NCCU) nursing program. The investment is part of Blue Cross NC's commitment to contribute $50 million toward community health initiatives in 2018. The investment is partially funded through $40 million in tax savings generated through the recently passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

NCCU will use the investment for scholarships to address access to care and nursing shortages, educational resources and technology.

"As a practicing physician, I've seen firsthand the central role that nurses play in creating a higher-quality, more affordable health care system," said Dr. Patrick Conway, President and CEO of Blue Cross NC. "We are excited to be able to help NCCU admit and train new nurses, especially from rural North Carolina. To bring costs down and increase quality, we have to think more broadly about what it means to invest in health - this is a great example of that principle in action."
