OHSU nursing students demonstrate a commitment to careers in nursing education, practice, and research that will benefit older adults. To support their studies, gerontological nursing students have successfully attracted over $4 million in financial support since 2002.
The Hearst Endowed Scholarship
The Hartford Center of Gerontological Excellence is honored to steward 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 Oregon Health & Science University’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.
Michaelson Geriatric Endowed Scholarship
The goal of the scholarship is to prepare nurse educators with the advanced knowledge needed to address the health and health care needs of older adults. This scholarship provides support for students enrolled in the Master of Nursing Education at Oregon Health & Science University School of Nursing who are committed to teaching about the health and health care needs of older adults.
Undergraduate Gerontological Nursing Honors Program
The Gerontological Nursing Honors Program (GNHP) is designed for outstanding undergraduate nursing students to receive additional mentorship and credits related to working with older adults. This unique honors program helps undergraduate students to better understand the needs of our aging population and prepares students for taking the next step in their education with an in-depth focus in gerontological nursing.
