Jonas Scholars Support Future Nurse Leader
This year, Jonas Nurse Leader Scholars and Alumni united in a campaign to support a scholarship for a future Nurse Leader. The goal was to raise $10,000 by the end of the year to support one Jonas Scholar in the upcoming 2016-18 Jonas Scholar Cohort. To date, they have already surpassed the goal with 69 contributors from 30 states across the country.

Join the campaign by making a contribution. (As always, all donations will go directly to a Nurse pursuing education, never to overhead.)
