AzNPC Scholarship Information
The Arizona Nurse Practitioner Council is proud to announce that we will be awarding two scholarships again this year. Application information is as follows:
NP Week Event Grant Application
National Nurse Practitioner Week, established by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, occurs the second week in November each year. The 2017 dates are November 13-19, 2016. As a part of your Arizona Nurse Practitioner Chapter 9 membership benefits, the Arizona Nurse Practitioner Council has appropriated $2,000 in funds to be allocated for patient or NP oriented activities during National Nurse Practitioner Week which showcase NPs and their contributions to healthcare. These events, activities or programs must focus on showcasing or promoting Nurse Practitioners. Consideration will be given to events that have the greatest impact on promoting awareness of Nurse Practitioner practice, NP service in the community or education of NPs. Grants will be awarded up to a maximum of $1,000 per event. The selection committee will be responsible for determination of awards based upon adherence to the application criteria and available funding.
Audrey Rath scholarship:
(Designated for NPs returning to school to advance their education)
- Amount - $1000
- Criteria - A current member of AzNA
- Applications Deadline - October 28, 2016
- Award winner will be announced during NP week, November 13-19, 2016
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.
