Here’s another testimony from Ann Marie Holland, RN, (top right) who works in Clinical Education & Professional Development and Edwards Surgical Units. Ann Marie received the Shirley A. Wheeler Nursing Scholarship in 2011:

“Incomprehensible joy is the best description for how I felt when I received the call stating I had been chosen as a scholarship recipient. I was so grateful to the donor and committee. I am currently taking classes towards my Masters Degree in Nursing Education at Stevenson University. The courses are 8 weeks, costing approximately $1700 each, not including books. The scholarship money has allowed me to take 1.5 additional classes and cover my books. I have made the best use of this God-sent gift and look forward to completing my studies.”

Ruby Vlcej, RN, (bottom right) who works in Flex Unit, received the AAMC Medical Staff Nursing Scholarship in 2011:

“AAMC has provided me with three great opportunities to help strengthen my professional career: Tuition Assistance, Project Advance, and being 2011 scholarship winner. Receiving a scholarship was a very rewarding feeling, which gave me a sense of great accomplishment. (It) has meant the world and has greatly helped me on my journey in becoming an effective nurse leader. Thanks AAMC.”
