73rd Annual Scholarship Celebration
“Looking to the Future: Nurses Overcoming Challenges, Staying Resilient and Strong”
Saturday, April 9 | 1:00 pm Online
Please join us in celebrating 73 years of providing financial aid and support to African heritage students pursuing careers in nursing.
In an effort to eliminate healthcare disparities, promote healthcare Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in nursing and the workforce, MMPNO is proud to play a key role in providing scholarships and thousands of hours of mentorship to nursing students pursuing careers in nursing.
The need for nurses and other health care providers is so clearly evident.
In our country and around the world, we are seeing daily, unprecedented illness and deaths. We are also seeing significant death rates among African Heritage and other people of color. MMPNO remains even more committed to increasing the number of African Heritage nurses.
Mary Mahoney Professional Nurses Organization awards scholarships annually. Students of African Heritage who are residents of the State of Washington and currently enrolled in a school of nursing, leading to an RN degree or higher, are encouraged to apply.
Our historic mission is also to provide financial aid and scholarships to students of African Heritage who pursue studies leading to careers in professional nursing.
Our scholarship recipients usually are working while in school, have families, and continue to maintain grade point averages above 3.5. They are the embodiment of resilience, compassion, and a desire to provide excellent nursing care to others.
Join us in our mission by becoming a member of the Mary Mahoney Professional Nurses Organization.
