Striving to improve care given to older Adults by connecting

nursing professionals across diverse care settings at all levels of care

Stay tuned for the Northwest Chapter of the National Nursing Association (NW NGNA) second annual Professional Development Scholarship announcement!  


Last year's offering included an incredibly competitive review process, and speaks to the growing numbers of nursing professionals who are striving to improve care given to older adults.


It was our pleasure to announce the four 2014 scholarship awardees:

Jeremy Frazier of Lacey, WA; Currently in 11th grade and enrolled in New Markets Nursing School  

Kelly Ranes of Graham, WA; Currently in the RN to BSN program at Saint Martin's University

The NW NGNA is delighted to support these professionals in the development of their gerontology career interests. This part of the Association’s Mission is supported by building strong local and national networks between clinicians, educators, researchers, and students.
