Nursing Students Awarded Promise of Nursing Scholarships

Belmont undergraduate nursing students Paige Nunnelly, Andrew Rainer and Erin Roder recently were awarded Promise of Nursing for Tennessee Scholarships. The scholarships are based on academic achievement, financial need and involvement in nursing student organizations and community activities related to health care.  The scholarship committee chose from hundreds of applications for these awards with only nine scholarships being given statewide. The Promise of Nursing for Tennessee scholarship program is administered by the Foundation of the National Students Nurses’ Association. Funding for the scholarship program was contributed by hospitals and health care agencies in Tennessee, Johnson & Johnson and national companies with an interest in supporting nursing education.
