Hospice Visions Incorporated and others announced the Joseph T. Rasch Nursing Scholarship with the goal of helping individuals who are active and motivated to dedicate themselves to the field of nursing. One selected student will receive a $1000 scholarship provided through the funds raised by employees of Hospice Visions, Inc. and Visions Home Health and Visions Home Care, LLC. This nursing scholarship is awarded annually to one or more nursing students for the fall semester, and depending on the availability of funds, additional scholarships may be awarded. Applications will be accepted for the Joseph T. Rasch Nursing Scholarship from March 1, 2021, to April 30, 2021. Applications should be turned in or mailed to the Visions office at 455 Park View Loop, Twin Falls, ID, 83301.
Scholarships are awarded to students who have demonstrated financial needs and academic achievements to back up their application. Sometimes, demonstrating the financial needs is not important, but usually, only students who are unable to pay for the full tuition and education expenses apply for the scholarship. Scholarships are for students who come from poorer financial backgrounds and are in need of a financial source to pay for their college or university. These scholarship awards are a bonus that provides a boost to a student’s college or university application and also job applications as they indicate that the student has academic achievements making them a good candidate to enrol or hire. These students who won scholarships are included in a network where they can communicate with past, present or future winners, and they can stay in touch.
Hospice Visions, founded in 1995, prides itself in being the only locally-operated, freestanding, non-profit hospice in the Magic Village.

At Hospice Visions, the employees help the patients with every step of the way and create a care experience, which is holistic and innovative.
