Academic Scholarship Recipients

Julie Anne Hubner

“I am delighted and thank you for supporting me as I pursue my academic goals. When I am not in school or spending time with my family, I work as a surgical nurse. I love my career and I love caring for the people in my community. I cannot thank you enough for your generosity. I have big dreams, and would not be where I am today without your generosity and funding of scholarship programs. I hope that someday I will be able to help future nursing students the way you have helped me.”

Camila Mendonca de Moraes

“I am a true fighter for training future high-achieving nurses and assure patient safety. I am extremely honored and pleased by this grant that will allow me to attend the AORN Global Surgical Conference and Expo 2018. This is really very important to me as it would be very difficult to travel to the US without your help. The AORN Conference is absolutely one of the most important conferences in the perioperative area. Thank you very much with all my heart!”
