Memorial Hospital Foundation Announces Recipients of Nursing Scholarships

The Memorial Hospital Foundation recently announced its inaugural class of Foundation Nursing Scholarship Recipients for 2022. These $5,000 scholarships are a unique opportunity for nursing students entering their final year of nursing education. The scholarship is intended to support future nursing professionals as they achieve their educational objectives, nursing licensure, and career goals at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center. As a part of the scholarship, the future nursing professional must sign an agreement to remain employed at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center as a Registered Nurse in a direct patient care area full-time for a period of two years.

“We are thrilled to add these talented healthcare professionals to our nursing staff,” said Lori Persohn, Vice President for Patient Services and Chief Nursing Officer. “Thanks to the support of our Foundation and generous community members, these scholarships give Memorial Hospital an advantage needed in today’s competitive hiring market.”

Funds for these scholarships were recently raised at the Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Charity Golf Classic in May.
