Embracing our future
Proud of Our Past
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.
Our historic mission is 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.
Join the Mary Mahoney Professional Nurses Organizations today! Annual memberships run from January-December.
Scholarship applications now being accepted. Completed applications must be received by December 1, 2020.
We congratulate Frankie Manning on being awarded the Dr. C. June Strickland Distinguished Diversity & Transcultural Nursing Advocate Award by the University of Washington School of Nursing.
