The 2015 Fall NEF Gala…a Not-too-Distant Memory
Nurses Educational Funds, Inc. transformed into a virtual organization in just a few weeks of time in December, 2015. With a newly appointed Executive Director, Jerelyn Weiss, and the use of technology, we are thriving and more efficient than ever. With NEF’s virtual office lower overhead expenses, the NEF Board of Directors has increased the scholarship award amounts for the 2016 – 2017 graduate nursing education scholarships. Now that we are settled in our new environment, it’s time to reflect on the major annual event held last November 4, 2015 at the Griffis Faculty Club in New York City.

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. Please read more about the Circle of Scholars under “Scholars” ‘Circle of Scholars’.
