Two School of Nursing Students Awarded Annual Louise Jarmon Hopkinson Scholarships
Two Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing students received scholarship funds recently in honor of Louise Jarmon Hopkinson.
Sara Wallace of Greenwood and Emily Rudis of Milford were awarded for academic achievements. Louise Jarmon Hopkinson was a 1932 graduate of Beebe School of Nursing. She served in the Army Nurse corps and as a private duty nurse at Beebe Hospital for many years. A generous bequest from the estate of Mrs. Hopkinson provides a merit scholarship award for the Spring Semester to senior and first-year nursing students based on their academic performance.
Beebe Medical Foundation manages and facilitates the awarding of the monies. The Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Healthcare is the only hospital-based nursing program in Delaware and is accredited by The Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The diploma in Professional Nursing is awarded at the completion of the curriculum, qualifying graduates to be eligible for National Council of State Boards of Nursing NCLEX examination, leading to licensure as a registered nurse. Beebe graduates consistently have high NCLEX pass rates.
