Can your school enter more than once?
You and your colleagues can give as much as you would like to the Foundation above and beyond $20.

How does the NLN Foundation use its funds?
They award scholarships to encourage experienced and ethnically diverse nurses who are pursuing masters or doctoral degrees to prepare for positions as full-time nurse educators. This year, the Foundation awarded 6 scholarships. Here are a few quotes from this year’s recipients:
Rebecca L. Boni, MSN, RN, ACCNS-AG, OCN – PhD Candidate, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
It is my ultimate goal to give back to nursing by becoming one of these influential leaders and promote the advancement of nursing and health care through educating prospective nurses and creating new knowledge related to nursing education.
Karen Grace, MSN, CNM – PhD Candidate, Johns Hopkins School of Nursing
I began my career caring for women from culturally diverse and vulnerable populations. As a nurse-midwife and midwifery educator for the past 17 years, I have dedicated my career to improving health outcomes for women.
Tamar Rodney, MSN, RN, PMHNP-BC – PhD Candidate, Johns Hopkins School of Nursing
A good educator can change how students think, process new ideas, and shape lifelong learning. A good educator also learns -om their students. My goal as a future nursing faculty is to “teach so we both can learn.”Visit the NLN Foundation website.
