The Lancaster Osteopathic Health Foundation (LOHF) is proud to announce the recipients of the 2019 Nurse Education Scholarship. The purpose of the Nurse Education Scholarship Program is to develop the workforce that cares for the mental well-being of Lancaster County youth and children. Nurses do this every day with a sensitivity to children’s emotional and mental wellness needs as they treat them for physical health.
This year, LOHF is investing $52,700 in the education local nursing students; this includes $39,500 to 13 new scholarship recipients, and $13,200 to previous recipients who are continuing in a second or third year of their degree program. Since 2003, LOHF has awarded more than $887,700 in scholarships towards the education of nurses who can be found caring for our family members, friends and neighbors.
LOHF nurse education scholarships support the education of nurses in Licensed Practical Nursing, Registered Nursing, Bachelor of Science in Nursing, advanced degrees, and certificate programs such as Certified School Nurse or Family Nurse Practitioner.
“We are thrilled to be able to assist healthcare providers with critical access to financial and educational resources including grants, scholarships, information and trainings. Our Nurse Education Scholarship supports students committed to serving the physical health needs of Lancaster County youth and children, from a lens of understanding possible behavioral healthcare needs,” explains Anna Brendle Kennedy, LOHF Executive Director.
