Your support of the Commonwealth Long Term Care Foundation and the Regirer Nursing Scholarships is instrumental in helping fulfill the dreams of nurses who have a passion for caring for Virginia’s frailest individuals.

About the Foundation

The Commonwealth Long Term Care Foundation is the 501c(3) tax-exempt organization affiliated with VHCA-VCAL. The Foundation supports the Regirer Nursing Scholarship program. Since the inception of the Foundation in 1997, it has awarded 426 Regirer Nurse Scholarships totaling $614,975.

The scholarships are named for Walter and Maria Teresa Regirer, members and leaders of VHCA-VCAL who led efforts to improve access to long term care education for career professionals. The Regirer Nurse Scholarship Program is designed to promote and support quality of care and to enhance the education and training of individuals currently working in VHCA-VCAL member facilities.

Scholarships are awarded annually to employees of VHCA-VCAL member facilities who want to advance their nursing careers by earning their LPN or RN degree.
