Two Loyola MSN Nursing Students Awarded Scholarships

Two MSN nursing students, Jaime Rohde and Lisa Spiewak, were awarded Graduate Scholarships in Cancer Nursing Practice from the American Cancer Society, the largest private not-for-profit funding source for cancer research and training in the United States. This competitive award supports graduate students pursuing a master's degree in cancer nursing for two years, with stipend of $10,000 per year for tuition support.  Both students are pursuing a MSN with a focus on cancer, with the goal of becoming adult nurse practitioners with a specialization in oncology. A requirement for this award is that the graduate program demonstrate integration of cancer nursing content; the cancer specialization tract is directed by Patricia J. Friend, PhD, APN-CNS, AOCN, Associate Professor.
