          We have started a scholarship fund through the SCC Foundation. To honor Nurses and those with a Nursing spirit... It is  called the Nursing: passion, pride and promise scholarship.  Help build something wonderful. The plan is to collect donations until the scholarship account has enough money in it to support a scholarship every year. Then we'll offer an essay competition to Nursing students. You know how it works: acorns to trees ... and pretty soon we have a forest! Acorns or checks will be cheerfully accepted. More info available ---> the Foundation link.
