We were thrilled to present a scholarship to two nurses in the Masters programme for children’s palliative care and complex care in NUIG university, in Victoria’s memory.
The thrilling news came through that the programme recently gained established status by the School of Nursing at NUI Galway in partnership with their colleagues in UCD. This is huge and welcome news. This means the course will progress into the future. Well done Claire Quinn, this is due to your vision and hard work!
The Victoria Thompson Scholarship is also spurred on with interest and support from the Galway University Foundation who stepped in to match our donation to the Masters programme. Therefore, there are now two scholarships of €2,000 for nurses on this prestigious course, in Victoria’s memory.
The progression of the scholarship is ongoing and our AGM in May will add new dimensions to what we hope to achieve.
For now, HUGE congratulations to the two very worthy winners of The Victoria Thompson Scholarship 2019, Heather Power and LeeAnne Heneghan.
Sincere thank you to everyone involved in the course, all the applicants, the course directors and other students, the NUIG foundation, the marking committee and our sponsors.
We hope to do a follow-up post on all past winners and how they are progressing in their chosen career paths. These nurses are super heroes in our eyes and we wish to thank them continuously for what they do.
Thank you Heather Power and LeeAnne Heneghan for applying and agreeing to be our recipients for 2019.
