Here’s how Kia Ahmed, BSN, RN, an Edwards Surgical Pavilion charge nurse, benefited from her scholarship:
“When I was awarded the Gus & Marjorie Berlitz Charitable Trust for Nursing Advancement & Excellence Scholarship this year, I was overcome with joy and honor. I am completely humbled and grateful for the generosity, thoughtfulness, and support as I continue to strive to be an exemplary service provider within this great profession. As a mother of two, a wife, and a health care provider, it is difficult for me to receive praise and recognition for what I am supposed to do each day. But I must admit that this gift, and the notion that someone felt that I was deserving of this honor, is something that I will always cherish and hold dear to me heart.
Nursing is my passion, patient centered care is my goal, and serving my community with excellence, is my duty. The investment funds that were presented to me continue to assist me in achieving my educational goals, tremendously. I am forever grateful for the donors giving spirit, and their continued support for nursing excellence. I will continue to push through my course work, and do my very best to make a difference in my community…one patient at a time.”
