The goals of the Nightingale Awards for Excellence in Nursing program are to encourage retention, inspire future nurses, focus public attention and recognize the breadth and scope of nursing practice at the local level. What better way to inspire future nurses then to honor nursing students for academic and community achievement.
In partnering with local nursing programs including Capital Community College, Central Connecticut State University, Goodwin College, University of Hartford, University of Saint Joseph the Nightingale Awards for Excellence in Nursing provides five scholarships – one scholarship to a deserving student at each School of Nursing. The respective Schools of Nursing select the scholarship nominee based on demonstrated financial need and qualities that suggest the student may be a future Nightingale nominee.
Hartford HealthCare at Home awarded five scholarships to area nursing students at a special Scholarship Luncheon last year. The winners were Alisha Luginbuhl , Capital Community College; Allyson Caverly, Central Connecticut State University; Marisa Nogas, Goodwin College; Michelle Beharry, University of Hartford; Tiffany Ratajczak, University of Saint Joseph.
