Nyack (N.Y.) Hospital recently awarded its inaugural Margaret Mary Kennedy Nursing Scholarship to Debbie Rye, RN.
Rye will put the award to good use as she pursues her BSN and MSN degrees at New York’s Mercy College.
“I am delighted to receive this scholarship to help me further my nursing education,” Rye said in a news release. “Nursing is an ongoing learning process, and I want to learn everything I can within the field. My goal is to complete my degrees, continue caring for patients and also teach so that I can help prepare new nurses to provide exceptional patient care.”
The scholarship was made possible by a gift from Peter Kennedy of Orangeburg, N.Y., in honor of the nursing care his wife received at Nyack Hospital.
“I am honored to provide an opportunity for Nyack Hospital employees to pursue nursing education,” he said in a news release. “The nursing care my wife, Margaret, received while a patient at Nyack Hospital was outstanding. Not only does this gift honor Margaret’s memory, but it enables me to give back to the people who provided her with such wonderful care while supporting nursing excellence for the future.”
The scholarship will be awarded annually to a Nyack Hospital employee enrolled in a nursing program or for RNs pursuing an advanced degree.
