Help Our Health Care Heroes

Show your gratitude by supporting nurses who care for you

Great nurses are the heart of great health care

Supporting growth and development of Bon Secours nurses is a gift that comes back to you through the care you receive

Nurses care for you and your family with skilled hands and compassionate hearts. They answer a call to serve. As health care evolves and changes, our nurses must stay on the leading edge of knowledge, experience and equipment so you always receive the top quality care you expect from Bon Secours.

You express your gratitude by donating to honor our nurses. You'll provide them with opportunities for training, professional development, certification courses, wellness programs and other resources so they'll be the best at taking good care of you. Your gift can even be designated to any one of our nursing-focused programs.

Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing 

Future nurses are trained in technical skills and building caring relationships with patients at our College of Nursing. The compassionate care you expect is shared by one generation of nurses to the next, with more than 73 percent of Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing graduates going on to work at a Bon Secours hospital or medical practice.

We depend on donors like you to offer faith-based nursing education, clinical experiences and mission outreach opportunities for all students. Donations provide scholarships, innovate programs, enhance campus facilities and support faculty to provide a top-notch education for the next generation of nursing professionals.

You can even designate your gift to a specific scholarship fund, program or initiative.

Violence Response Team

Thanks to funding from donors like you, Bon Secours can offer a special resource known as the Violence Response Team, which includes both forensic nursing and victim advocacy support. Specialty-trained nurses are available 24 hours a day to care for sexual and physical abuse victims. The entire team helps vulnerable victims begin healing, and also plays a vital role in the justice system. A discreet unit provides victims with privacy for support and examinations.

Forensic nurses and victim advocates help patients of all ages when the unthinkable has happened, including sexual assault and human trafficking, child and elder abuse. They work with victims to build trust that has been broken by abuse. They collect evidence for investigations, including taking fluid and hair samples, photographing evidence and testifying in court cases. Our Violence Response Team also train other nurses across the region and provide community education to increase available support and expertise for victims of violence.

Southside College of Health Sciences

Healthcare education today involves much more than the transfer of information and technical skills to the student. The faculty and staff of Southside College of Health Sciences are committed to providing a high-quality environment which fosters student success through institutional integrity, ethical practices and a commitment to continuous improvement.

Donations provide financial relief to students seeking Associate Degrees in Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Radiologic Technology and Registered Nursing. Gifts to SCHS also provide funding to support capital needs so that the College may expand enrollment.

Instructive Visiting Nurse Association (IVNA) 

Our IVNA team is an important part of Bon Secours' home health services and community wellness resources. Our visiting nurses and home health staff can provide care that helps prevent patients from going into the hospital or emergency room again.

Each year IVNA nurses give over 20,000 vaccinations throughout Richmond and surrounding communities. And thanks to donors like you, adults and children can get immunizations and home health care regardless of their ability to pay.
