Penn Nursing: $4.35 Million Grant  

April 26, 2011, Volume 57, No. 31

The University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing has received a $4.35 million grant from the Helene Fuld Health Trust, HSBC Bank USA, N.A. to implement upcoming undergraduate curriculum revisions. The grant will help fund the renovation of science laboratories, implementation of a new undergraduate curriculum, and will provide cutting edge technology for simulation education and observation through the creation of simulation models. The grant comes at the same time as the School’s #1 ranking in Master’s education by U.S. News and World Report (Almanac March 22, 2011). Improvements will begin this September and will continue through September 2012.

The Helene Fuld Health Trust is the nation’s largest private funder devoted to nursing students and nursing education. The foundation began in 1935 by Dr. Leonhard Felix Fuld and sister, Florentine, to honor their mother, Helene. In 1965 the trust converted to the Helene Fuld Health Trust and HSBC Bank USA became a corporate trustee in 1969.
