Nancy Adams Nursing Leadership Scholarship Announced
The Nancy D. Adams Nursing Leadership Scholarship Announced by WMHS Foundation
The new Nancy D. Adams Nursing Leadership Scholarship was established in March 2012 in honor of Nancy Adams, Senior Vice President, Chief Nurse Executive of the Western Maryland Health System. The purpose of the scholarship is to develop the next generation of strong, capable nurse leaders. Any WMHS employee with at a 3.0 GPA or higher seeking a BSN or higher in Nursing/Business Administration is eligible to apply.
