Through the USF College of Nursing’s B.E.A.R.S. Program, you can help our Nursing Students bring smiles to sick children all over Tampa Bay! Our custom commemorative bears, dressed in their very own 2014 USF Nursing uniforms, will be hand delivered by our Nursing students this holiday season.
For every bear you give, you may also purchase one for you or a loved one to keep. You may even consider beginning a bear collection!
Not only will your gift give a smile, but 100% of the proceeds benefit the USF College of Nursing through research and student success initiatives.
Each bear, or basket of bears, you sponsor through B.E.A.R.S. helps us transform healthcare and transform lives. At some point in our lives, we will all need a nurse and your support will ensure that USF continues to produce the outstanding nurses who will care for you and your family.
B.E.A.R.S. deliveries will take place during the holidays at the following participating hospitals:
- St. Joseph's Children's Hospital
- Sarasota Memorial Hospital
- Tampa General Hospital
- Morton Plant Hospital
- Morton Plant Mease
- Florida Hospital Tampa
- All Children's Hospital, St. Petersburg
- Lakeland Regional Medical Center
