Margaret Wheatley Member Scholarship for First Year in GCNA-ONA-ANA
Margaret Wheatley, PhD, RN was the first African American to serve as ONA President (1993-97) and had a passion for nursing research and education in mental health and aging. In her memory and namesake, the 5th Annual “Margaret Wheatley New Member Scholarship” will provide full ANA/ONA/ GCNA dues in 2020.
The scholarship is designed to enhance the first year of membership with opportunities for engagement and involvement. GCNA is looking for a next generation leader with ideas that will have a positive impact on nurses and the healthcare community in Cuyahoga and Geauga Counties.
Is there a catch? Of course! In addition to being mentored by a GCNA member, the awardee will develop a project that exemplifies the GCNA vision and mission and see it to completion during 2020. Past projects include engaging new members through social networking and social outreach events, educating the nursing community in Greater Cleveland, and representing the interest of nurses in this area through participation in community service events. Do you know a Registered Nurse looking to make a difference in nursing in the Greater Cleveland area? If so, encourage this colleague to submit the application by October 31, 2019.
For information or to apply, contact GCNA at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (216) 771-6922.
Let’s see who accepts the challenge to make possibilities real!
