Introducing our 2019 Winner: Robynelle!
Robynelle is the 2019 winner of our Heart of Healthcare Nursing Scholarship, and we are so excited to introduce her to you! She was chosen because she is truly the heart of healthcare—she wants to help underserved populations get the mental healthcare they need, but often can’t access. While working as a clinical mental health therapist, she came to realize that nurses are the ones often serving as the go-between for underserved people and medical providers. Thanks to this, Robynelle decided to go back to school to get her nursing degree.
Currently a student at Oregon Health & Science University, Robynelle has two semesters left before she begins her doctoral program. She believes that if we take the time to get to know people—even if they’re from a different community than we are or are living with a mental illness or addiction we don’t have—we’ll see that they are not that different from us. When she finishes her schooling, Robynelle hopes to move to a rural area to become the kind of nurse everyone truly wants: a nurse who listens.
We are proud to grant the Heart of Healthcare Scholarship to Robynelle and other amazing future nurses every year. We look forward to helping nursing students achieve their dreams of making the world a healthier and kinder place.
