All scholarship winners receive a non-renewable scholarship of $1,000 payable directly to the institution in which they are enrolled. Undergraduate nursing programs are those offering an associate or bachelor s degree in nursing.

She went back to school and earned her nursing degree in As a Registered Nurse, Barbara worked at the local hospital and medical clinic in Elkader, Iowa. She was well known for her skillful nursing, extraordinary compassion, loving smile, and generosity with her time and talents to the whole community.
