Below are a list of the sponsorship amounts and benefits:

Promotion Sponsor Benefits:
A Platinum sponsor has exclusivity promotion while a Diamond sponsor will share with one other Diamond Sponsor in the promotion. Promotional ad placement will be distributed across a variety of social media platforms, websites, and publications. Each episode is its own promotion.
Promotional Sponsors are recognized at the end of each commercial and prior to the program sponsor recognitions in the episode. The words in the episode are, “The following program is made possible by…” and a sponsor phrase or slogan can be included. Sponsorships have a similar presence on this website. A platinum sponsor who sponsors three or more episodes becomes a Title Sponsor and has additional programming and airtime benefits.
Program Development / 2-Minute Segments: Sponsorship for this campaign will pay for both the development and promotion of each segment. The minimum sponsorship runs six individual segments per day and focuses on three topics of discussion for 2021. Segments run in rotation online and communicate the need, passion, and history of nursing. Spanning across FaceBook, Twitter, and Linked In this project will produce a minimum of 50 segments. Inspiring stories, personal passion, and personal historic-involvement stories will engage many healthcare professionals as they watch their peers and learn more about their profession.
Passion Segment Sponsorship Rates Per Segment

The six-part 30-minute documentary series kicks-off with a series of nursing history and passion segments to bring awareness to the importance of nurses and nursing. Passion segments are short inspiring nurse stories that reveal each nurse’s passion for care.
Scholarships, Awards, and Gifts: During the live nightly podcast, there will be nightly winners that will receive nursing tuition scholarships, continuing education scholarships, travel accommodations, and door prizes. This reaches a broader, more significant audience and supports nurses continued education and encourages potential students into local nursing programs. You must be a Silver Sponsor or greater to participate in providing scholarships due to promotional benefits and restrictions of other sponsor benefits. Please visit the sponsor page or contact us directly for more details.
A Gold Sponsorship provides much more than a title screen. It provides sponsor participation. History and reality are the two major components that make up the body of the 30-minute documentary! Each episode has a historic theme and a nurse clinical professional that supports that theme. Introducing the audience to a CNA, LPN, RN, APRN, DNP, and other nursing professions in each episode, why their job is so important, and how they work with their employers to provide excellent patient care are our core objectives. Understanding history lays the foundation for credibility and conveying the various professions within nursing broadens the viewer's appreciation for what healthcare offers today. Each episode represents different clinical professions and the value they bring across the spectrum of time. The episode shares a portion of the clinical professional's personal story and that nurse's relationship and partnership with their employer to engage the audience. The sponsor can include three management-level interviews to support the nurse in this episode.
Program sponsor benefits are significant in developing the storyline as we engage their staff in telling the nurse's story. The greatest benefit is the immediate engagement and long-term presence in the life of the project.
