NEF’s Circle of Scholars
NEF Circle of Scholars, a formal network among NEF scholars was created in 2016 to serve as a communication platform for the thousands of nurses who have been recipients of NEF scholarships. We hope past NEF scholars will regularly update NEF on their accomplishments as nurse leaders so we can share their successes via our NEF Web Site, on Facebook, and on Twitter. We also hope that as the NEF scholars continue to advance in their nursing careers they will remember the next generation of nurse leaders and become lifelong supporters of Nurses Educational Funds, Inc.
