Applications are now being accepted for the Annual Home Care & Hospice Foundation’s Nursing Scholarship. This year the board approved to increase the amount from $1,500 to $2,000.
The Home Care & Hospice Foundation knows that our amazing nurses are the backbone of Pike County Hospice, and they want to entice more compassionate individuals to pursue nursing and help change the lives of our community members.
It’s a very rewarding career, both monetarily and emotionally. Making a difference in people’s lives and making them smile is not something that you can achieve in any career. As a nurse, you’ll make a huge difference in people’s lives. A caring and compassionate nurse is considered as a guardian angel by patients. This can be a very satisfying and gratifying career for the compassionate.
The Home Care & Hospice Foundation of Pike County’s Nursing Scholarship Application is available every January, and will award one $2,000 nursing scholarship this year to a student or adult pursuing a nursing career. Applicants must be a resident of Pike County, and be a full-time student. For a list of all the criteria, and for applications please visit our web page at www.pikecountyhealth.org.
