Deaconess has a long history of supporting the nursing profession through education, employment and professional development. In fact, the Deaconess School of Nursing produced the 1st nurses in Ohio to be registered with the State Medical Board. We continue that tradition today by awarding scholarships to students at tristate colleges and universities each year.
In May, 2017, the Deaconess Foundation awarded 10 scholarships totaling more than $50,000 to undergraduate and graduate nursing students, as well as students pursuing careers as allied health professionals. This year’s students represent several area schools including Xavier University, the University of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky University. In addition, a $1000 Deaconess School of Nursing Scholarship was awarded to a worthy student made possible through contributions provided by the alumni of the original Deaconess School of Nursing.
