Dr. Nola Raye Della-Monica lost her battle with cancer in November 2014.  Her work continues as every student at Emmanuel College is introduced to critical patient safety issues through the leadership curriculum that she created.  Her impact continues as every nurse who heard her theory of caring is reminded of the importance of listening.  Her touch is felt by all who perceived her kindness, learned from her brilliance, and grew from her encouragement.

As she lay on a stretcher being wheeled into surgery, Nola encouraged the nurse caring for her to continue on with her education.  Clearly the most fitting tribute to this scholar, theorist, and educator is a permanent scholarship in Nola’s name for nurses at Emmanuel College. This scholarship will continue the work Nola believed in so strongly, bringing more nurses to advance their education through the curriculum that she shaped.

Please join us to ensure that Nola’s work and legacy will continue to be celebrated with each student endowed with this extraordinary gift!  To do this, we need the help of alumni, friends, colleagues, and family. We must raise $25,000.00 to create an endowed scholarship fund that will continue for many years.  Every contribution will help, big and small.

Please consider honoring Nola with your kind, compassionate, taxdeductible contribution to the Nola Della-Monica Nursing Scholarship Fund at Emmanuel College.
