I have been employed at AAMC for the last four years; it has been a great experience — a blessing to my family and me.
Last year, I was awarded the Grow a Nurse scholarship — a scholarship funded by nurses and awarded to a fellow nurse enrolled in school — and it has assisted me tremendously with purchasing school supplies, a laptop, and tuition. I am currently enrolled in the RN to BSN program at Liberty University, and to have assistance with the many expenses of higher education is greatly appreciated. My husband and I want to avoid as much debt as possible and this scholarship has allowed us to do that in many ways.
The Grow a Nurse scholarship, managed by AAMC nurse Carol Fickinger and our Foundation, is extra special to me because so many of my colleagues gave of their own resources to make these funds available. You, too, may have also contributed, and if so, thank you so much. It has been a blessing as I move forward in my career; I plan to become a Nurse Practitioner.
I am employed with AAMC through Healthcare Enterprises (HCE) and this scholarship, coupled with the Nurses Week dinner, helped to draw me closer to the hospital staff. I can say I truly felt like a family member after the recognition dinner.
I will always be grateful to AAMC for this gift and for training and equipping nurses for excellence.
