Launched at the end of 2022, Exergen is celebrating a highly successful first year of its nursing school donation program. The program supports nursing students’ career development across the country by providing free access to industry-leading thermometers used by top hospitals and doctors across the U.S.

WATERTOWN, Mass., Feb. 26, 2024 –  Exergen, a leading manufacturer of  thermometers and maker of the most accurate thermometer on the market, is supporting the next generation of healthcare professionals with its nursing school donation program. The program  donated  an impressive 70,000 thermometers in the first year. Serving a variety of accredited nursing schools, colleges and universities, Exergen offered its signature products at no cost, ensuring that as nurses pursue their passion for helping patients, they have access to a critical tool for helping to diagnose potential health issues or infections.

According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, there are more than 2,600 colleges or universities that offer a nursing degree program in the United States, with over 250,000 students enrolling in nursing schools each year. Exergen’s mission to advance the accuracy of thermometry is coupled with supporting the work and training of healthcare professionals across the country.

“We are proud to help support nursing students across the country and ultimately seek to lessen the burden on staff when it comes to temperature taking, a key indicator of severity of illness,” said Dr. Francesco Pompei, Founder and CEO of Exergen. “Nurses work so hard to provide quality patient care in a challenging healthcare environment and Exergen aims to make their jobs just a little easier by providing a thermometer that is trusted for accuracy and reliability while also being comfortable for their patients, family and friends.”

“Our registered nursing and practical nursing students and faculty appreciate the generosity of Exergen Corporation,” said North Georgia Technical College Vice President of Academic Affairs Mindy Glander. North Georgia Technical College registered nursing and practical nursing students received a donation of 93 home model TemporalScanners and 10 professional model TemporalScanners from Exergen. “It is evident that Exergen values patient care and is dedicated to supporting and educating the next generation of nurses. We could not be more grateful for this outstanding donation for our college and community.”

Numerous less trustworthy products have entered the market during the “anti-touch” sentiment of COVID-19. Exergen’s TAT-2000C Temporal Artery Thermometer and TAT-5000C Temporal Artery Thermometer continue to provide unmatched accurate results with safety, clarity and speed in  home and medical settings. Since the start of the program in December of 2022, Exergen has donated over 70,000 home model thermometers to students and nearly 4,000 professional model thermometers to skills labs at nearly 400 nursing schools across the.

Exergen remains committed to providing high-quality thermometers that offer accurate temperature readings for individuals and families and continues to proudly support nurses as they advance their careers, working to ultimately improve patient care and protect public health.
