Pam Melvin R.N., B.S.N., a 1984 graduate of Truman and part-time clinical faculty member, received a $10,000 Missouri Hospital Association scholarship to complete a Master of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Central Missouri. She is among 31 nursing students who will receive funding to pursue graduate education requirements for faculty positions at Missouri’s nursing schools.

“The faculty shortage in Missouri’s nursing schools has limited students’ opportunity to pursue nursing careers,” said Marc D. Smith, MHA president. “The Graduate Nursing Faculty Financial Assistance Grant Program is designed to ease the financial burden for aspiring nurse educators while increasing student capacity in nursing schools.”
