ROCKY MOUNT, NORTH CAROLINA – Dr. Dan Crocker, a retired local physician and Chairman of NC Wesleyan’s Board of Trustees, has generously donated $100,000 to support North Carolina Wesleyan University’s RN to BSN program. The gift will provide funds for nurse faculty, nursing scholarships and other program developments to enhance this new degree option.
Scholarships will be awarded to new students who begin the program in summer or fall 2022. Recipients accepted and registered for classes are eligible to receive an award. Applicants applying for the scholarship must be an NC resident, maintain an overall 3.0+ GPA, be accepted into the RN to BSN Program, provide a letter of recommendation, submit a personal statement and attend the College’s Annual Scholarship Award program.
“Our BSN-prepared nurses are catalysts of change and drive improvements in care,” stated Dr. Brittany Bass, NC Wesleyan’s Director of RN to BSN Program. “The overwhelming generosity shown through this second gift will make a tremendous impact on Battling Bishop nurses and every patient they encounter throughout their nursing careers.” Additional details can be found at ncwc.edu/crocker-nursing-scholarship.
