URI graduate nursing students win scholarships

Posted 8/3/14

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – Two nurse practitioners pursuing doctorates at the University of Rhode Island have been awarded scholarships from The Jonas Center for Nursing Excellence and Veterans Healthcare.

The grant is given by the New York-based foundation to organizations to prepare nurses in all 50 states to become nurse scientists and instructors in response to a shortage of faculty. The Jonas Nurse Leaders Scholar Program provides $20,000 over two years of study.

An insufficient supply of nurses with doctorates has had a significant impact on the ability of nursing schools to educate sufficient numbers of professionals needed to engage in the highest level of practice, research and scholarship, according to the center.

Brandi Parker Cotton and Katherine Simmonds will receive scholarships beginning in fall 2014.
