Audrey worked as the advanced practice consultant to the Arizona State Board of Nursing for many years. She was a pioneer for nurse practitioners in Arizona-many of our current daily practices are directly related to Audrey's influence in expanding our scope of practice. For all those who tried to stand in the way saying "NURSES can't possibly do that"! Audrey was able to move past them showing that indeed nurses CAN provide primary care.

This scholarship was established to keep the memory of Audrey alive so that we appreciate the strides we've made as being one of the top states in the entire US to practice in as an NP-much of the credit for this goes to Audrey.
