Scholarships

The Susan Peters Nursing Scholarship

Click here for Application

The Susan Peters Nursing Scholarship was established to assist with the education costs for a Registered Nurse (RN) who is continuing their education, and specifically pursuing a Nurse Practitioner degree. The scholarship will award two (2) scholarships in the amount of $2,000 each year.

Mrs. Peters, who sadly passed away in March 2020, set up this scholarship because she wanted to make an impact on the future of nursing in our community while promoting the Nurse Practitioner profession. She was a 1965 graduate of the House of the Good Samaritan (HGS) Nursing School and spent over 20 years as a Nurse Manager in various areas, including Med/Surg and Orthopedics. She retired in 1999 as a Radiation Oncology Nurse.
