Care + Compassion = Noble Nurses

This month, Baptist Health College Little Rock will proudly celebrate the graduation for hundreds of nurses who will begin their journeys in this noble profession.

Here’s a recent example of why our nurses are so special…

In desperate need of medical attention, a man entered through our doors at Baptist Health. Once his medical care was provided, two of his nurses recognized his needs were bigger than his diagnosis.  Sadly, he had been living without running water for several months and had not been able to take a warm shower.  Our nurses went into action, they made sure he was able to take a shower for as long as he wanted and purchased him new, clean clothes to wear, before he exited our doors.  Heroes come in many forms and we are proud to share that this man had been taken care of by two Nurse Heroes. 

Without a doubt, this story confirms that nursing is a noble calling that profoundly collaborates with care and compassion.  Our amazing caregivers take pride in going beyond the “call to duty” to be instruments of God’s restorative power.

This is the hands-on environment the nursing students have been mentored and trained in at Baptist Health and these graduates are fully prepared for the life of service they have chosen.

Please help us celebrate our next generation of Heroes!

Baptist Health College Little Rock will not be able to conduct the normal ceremony, due to COVID-19.  However, the college will host a “Drive By White Coat Graduation Ceremony” to welcome these brave nurses into this challenging yet rewarding career.

With the white coat comes a sense of pride in one’s accomplishments and a feeling of responsibility to treat all patients with dignity and compassion. This celebration honors the essential role nurses play in professional health care and recognizes their unity with their medical counterparts.

Sponsor a student today with a gift of $75 (or any amount you choose) to help cover the cost of the coat each graduate will receive at the ceremony.

Your gift will mark this life-changing milestone and will be treasured for a lifetime!

Click here to gift a white coat.   On the donate page, select “Other,” type in White Coat and your gift amount.  Upon request, we will happily send notes to students to acknowledge all generous gifts.
