Nola Della Monica Endowed Nursing Scholarship Award

In honor of our dear friend, Dr. Nola Della Monica, who lost her battle with cancer in 2014. Dr. Della Monica’s passion for the practice of nursing, caring for patients and her love of teaching is being remembered through this endowed nursing scholarship. Eligible candidates must demonstrate outstanding merit in academic skills in theory, research and caring components. Congratulations to MSN student Kelly Brawley on the honor of being awarded the first Nola Dell Monica Endowed Nursing Scholarship Award!

Clara Barton Award for Service to Humanity (Community and Student Recipients)

A Civil War heroine and the founder and first president of the American Red Cross, Clara Barton was a strong female voice battling bureaucratic indifference in service to Americans, committed to the personal and professional expression of service. Eligible candidates are recognized for their ability to combine Barton’s zeal of serving others with the commitment to significantly contribute to professional and civic communities. We look for candidates who have made a distinctive mark on those communities, specifically for those individuals providing outstanding service for vulnerable populations through volunteer work or extraordinary practice in the workplace. Congratulations to Fabienne Lundy ‘17, student recipient of the Clara Barton Award for Service to Humanity and Dr. Monica Onyango, community recipient of the Clara Barton Award for Service to Humanity!
