Z Club Nursing Scholarship Awarded
(l-r) Tracy Bell, Program Coordinator for the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing; Erin Bendler, Nursing Student Scholarship Recipient; Suzanne Olkowski, Education and Libraries Chair, GFWC Zwaanendael Women’s Club; and Lynn Barberi, Vice President, GFWC Zwaanendael Women’s Club.
The 2021 GFWC Zwaanendael Women’s Club annual scholarship for a nursing student who has achieved academic excellence in their first semester at the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Healthcare was awarded to Erin Bendler. Erin graduated from Livingston High School in New Jersey, holds a degree in human services from the University of Delaware, and a master’s degree in social work from Rutgers University. After a few years working in social work Erin made the change to nursing. She says “I’m one of the older people in the class but very happy with my decision to pursue a medical career. It’s a much better fit for me.” Erin hopes to work in the operating room and become a certified RNFA-Registered Nurse First Assistant. She says she is very appreciative of this financial support as it will help her accomplish her goals and reduce financial stress that she and her husband are experiencing due to her husband’s businesses being closed during the covid-19 pandemic.
