Friends of Nursing has opened applications for Dort's scholarship

Posted over 4 years ago by Gretchen Armbruster

A Friends of Nursing memorial scholarship is available this year for nurses advancing their education in the mental health field. The scholarship is the Dorothy "Dort" Gregg Memorial Scholarship in Psychiatric nursing. It was established recently by her family and from memorial gifts given in her honor by friends and former students. Dort (September 14, 1920-February 22, 2014) was a pioneer in psychiatric nursing in Colorado and the nation. Many knew her as a faculty member at the University of Colorado School of Nursing and from her active role in mental health activities throughout the state. This scholarship will be awarded in April 2015.
