LOHF Nursing Scholarships
“As a nurse, we have the opportunity to heal the heart, mind, soul and body of our patients, their families and ourselves. They may not remember your name but they will never forget how you made them feel.”
– Maya Angelou
Through our Nurse Education Scholarship fund, we invest in local nursing students who exhibit exceptional academic abilities and have a true passion for the nursing profession. We look for individuals who will make a difference not only to the people they care for, but to the larger community. Scholarship recipients come from all walks of life and exhibit a wide range of talents and skill sets.
