The wait is over! After receiving thousands of applications from undergraduate and graduate nursing students, we are delighted to announce the winners of our semi-annual Undergraduate & Graduate scholarships.
With so many exemplary applications submitted in 2017, F.A. Davis is also excited to announce that this year we have also awarded four runners-up with $100 gift cards and a free copy of one of our sponsoring titles. The two undergraduate scholarship runners-up are Moyosoreoluwa Akintunde, an RN-BSN student at Emory University and Natalie M. Kustner, an RN-BSN student at University of Wisconsin School of Nursing. The two graduate scholarship runners-up are Camille Richards, an MSN student at Virginia Commonwealth University and Sylvana Paternite, an MSN student from Indiana Wesleyan University.
As we prepare for the 2018 scholarship season, we wanted to share their stories and essays with other students curious about our scholarship opportunity!
Our winner is Megan Maddox, a BSN student at Belmont University in Nashville, TN. In addition to being a full-time student, she works two jobs – this summer, she is working as a barista at a local coffee shop.
Here at F.A. Davis, we know that nurses are caring and compassionate by nature, and that the field they’ve chosen to embark on is rewarding. But sometimes, nursing can be very challenging, and those challenges begin on Day One of nursing school. We want to do what we can to help. That’s why our nursing team created our first annual Undergraduate Nursing Scholarship. We’ll be giving $1,500 to a lucky LPN/LVN, RN, or RN-BSN student in the U.S. or Canada.
