WALTHAM, Mass., April 18, 2018 – As part of an ongoing commitment to support nurses dedicated to caring for patients with kidney disease, Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA), the nation’s leading renal care company, and the American Nephrology Nurses Association (ANNA) announced five recipients of educational scholarships at ANNA’s 2018 National Symposium in Las Vegas.
The five scholarship recipients were selected out of 32 applicants and will receive $4,000 ahead of the fall 2018 academic year.
The scholarships were made possible through a $20,000 grant from FMCNA provided to ANNA for the education of its members.
“We are thrilled to honor these five inspiring nephrology nurses and students,” said Lynda Ball, MSN, RN, CNN, ANNA president. “We thank Fresenius Medical Care North America for their partnership and commitment to furthering education for our nephrology nurses.”
“As a leader in renal care, we are committed to recognizing the passion and dedication of nephrology nurses across the country,” said Ron Rodgers, Executive Vice President, FMCNA and President, Fresenius Kidney Care. “Congratulations to the scholarship recipients and thank you for the incredible work you do for people living with kidney disease.”
Recipients were selected by ANNA based on their academic records, letters of recommendation and essays from each applicant describing their career and educational goals; they include:
The scholarship recipients are also featured on a “Wall of Fame” built specifically for the ANNA National Symposium, the premier nephrology nursing meeting of the year. The three-day event offers opportunities for attendees to expand their knowledge base, enhance their clinical skills and widen their professional network. FMCNA supports ANNA year-round as a Corporate-Plus Member.
