RBC continues its support for Grey-Bruce nursing education

Financial support for nursing education in Grey and Bruce counties continues.

RBC Royal Bank has announced a $10,000 donation to Grey Bruce Health Services hospitals.

The donation will fund more educational opportunities that allow nurses to provide leading-edge care to the communities they serve.

Last year, funding from partners like RBC Royal Bank allowed 65 registered nurses and 17 registered practical nurses from across GBHS’ six hospitals to complete specialized education and training in such areas as mental health certifications, chemotherapy and oncology, cardiac care, perioperative nursing.

“Supporting our local hospitals is important to our employees, our clients and our communities and we are proud to present this $10,000 cheque to Owen Sound Regional Hospital as part of our larger $90,000 commitment to healthcare in local communities,” said Dan Woods, regional vice president of Central Shores, RBC.

Since this initiative began in 2009, RBC has donated $780,000 to further the professional development of nurses in Grey, Bruce, Wellington, Perth and Dufferin counties.
