The AAMC Foundation will award eighteen $5,000 scholarships this year! Applications are now being accepted, more info here. Deadline to submit is February 13, 2013.

Here’s how Sharolyn Bush BSN, RN, CMSRN, a nurse on the Special Care Unit, benefited from her scholarship:

Doc1I used my scholarship money to supplement the tuition reimbursement from the hospital, to complete my master’s degree in administration and leadership from Notre Dame of Maryland University.

“My donors are no longer with us, but if I could speak to them I would thank them for their generosity in not only giving back to AAMC, but for acknowledging and giving back to nursing. Their support shows nursing that we are valued by the patients we serve.

“Receiving scholarships for continuing education allows nurses like me to have the financial support to further our studies, and use our new knowledge to better serve this hospital and the communities that need our care.

“My career will be enhanced by this scholarship as I continue to strive for ways to implement my master’s degree in administration and leadership. I came to AAMC as a new graduate and am now into my sixteenth year of nursing. AAMC is home to me, and I plan to use my talents to continuously provide the best patient care and implement my education to lead the future of nursing.”
