There is a binder in the PA's office in the Riverhead building with information about Scholarship opportunities. You are welcome to see if you are eligible to apply for any of them. Externship opportunities are usually posted in February. As more information becomes available, we will share it with you.
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 (about $5,000) 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.
