scholarshipNEW Scholarships Awarded! 

The Hartford Center of Gerontological Nursing Excellence is proud to announce two new recipients for the Hearst Foundations Endowed Scholarship for AY 2016-17. Please join us in congratulating Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner students Karleena Twitchell and Nathaniel Thornton. This award supports advanced practice nurses whose focus is on the health and health care of older adults. As our population ages it becomes vital that nurses, the largest segment of the nation's health care system, be trained and competent in the care of older adults.

The Hearst Endowed Scholarship

The goal of the Hearst Foundations' scholarship is to prepare advanced practice nurses whose focus is on the health and health care of older adults. This scholarship provides funding for students enrolled in Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs at OHSU's School of Nursing and whose focus is on gerontological advanced practice nursing. These include the Family Nurse Practitioner, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, and Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner programs. Up to $15,000 will be awarded to approximately two students each year.
