Five earn advanced-practice nursing scholarships

scholarships

At a special ceremony Nov. 11, five YNHH nurses received scholarships to pursue advanced nursing degrees. The scholarships are named for Marna P. Borgstrom, CEO, Yale New Haven Hospital, and Peter N. Herbert, MD, executive director, Physician Referral Services, and former chief medical officer. Borgstrom, Dr. Herbert and Sue Fitzsimons, RN, PhD, senior vice president, Patient Services, presented the scholarships, awarded annually to nurses working toward licensure and certification as an advanced practice registered nurse, nurse midwife or registered nurse anesthetist. The scholarships are funded by Dr. Milton and the late Betty Ruth Hollander. Betty Ruth, a longtime YNHH board of trustees member, was also a hospital patient grateful for her nurses' skill and kindness. With Dr. Hollander are recipients (l-r): Jeremy Estes, RN, Stroke/Telemetry (Verdi 5 East); Kate Rooney, RN, Medical Intensive Care Unit (NP 9/10); Allison Dell, RN, MICU (Verdi 3 North/ West); Claire Hardin, RN, Pediatric Emergency Department; and Katherine Reina, RN, Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SP 6-1).
