Staff WriterBusiness, RSS-Business

Two nursing students from the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Healthcare have been announced as winners of the Louise Jarmon Hopkinson Scholarship. They are Emily Rudis of Milford, who had the highest academic average through the fall semester of her senior year, and Chloe Sylvester, also of Milton, who is first-year nursing student with the highest academic average through the fall semester of her first year of nursing courses.
The scholarship is presented in honor of Louise Jarmon Hopkinson, a 1932 graduate of the Beebe School of Nursing. She served in the Army Nurse Corps and as a private duty nurse at Beebe for many years. A generous bequest from the estate of Mrs. Hopkinson provides merit-based scholarships, awarded during the spring semester to senior and first-year nursing students based on their academic performance. The Beebe Medical Foundation manages and facilitates the award selection and presentation process.

The Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Healthcare, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2021, is accredited by The Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and is a designated Center of Excellence in Nursing Education by the National League for Nursing (NLN). The Diploma in Professional Nursing is awarded at the completion of the curriculum, qualifying graduates to be eligible for the National Council of State Boards of Nursing NCLEX examination, leading to licensure as a registered nurse. Beebe graduates consistently have the highest NCLEX pass rates in the state.
