Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC
Quinn Fowlie Scholarship Nominations

In B.C. 9% of youth 10 to 14 years and 11% of youth aged 15 to 24 have some disability due to a physical or mental health condition. In some cases, these youth are accompanied by nurses throughout their daily lives. For other youth, frequent hospitalization, managing chronic conditions or recovering from serious illness or injury requires frequent contact with a team of nurses and specialists who become an important part of a young person's life.

NNPBC seeks to award the Quinn Fowlie Scholarship to a deserving young patient star who has benefited from the support and expert care provided by nurses throughout their young life.

The Award

The 2018 recipient will receive $1,000 CDN to subsidize expenses for on-going education.

The recipient and one additional person to travel to the awards ceremony will be compensated. Travel, meal and accommodation expenses will be covered.

We welcome additional supporters to attend the 2018 Nursing Awards of Excellence (to be held on December 17, 2018), but can only cover the travel costs for the winner and one guest.
