It is with great pleasure that I announce this years recipients of the Edith Lobue Memorial Scholarship are Wenona Bell MSN, RN and Nikki Christy Honore’, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, CPN.
Wenona stated her goals are to continue to prepare undergraduate nursing students to enter the profession of nursing, do research to contribute to the body of nursing, and teach on the graduate level.
Nikki stated her ultimate goal is to be a public health nurse executive leader and improve health and social outcomes for the citizens of Louisiana.
Edith Lobue was a stanch supporter of RNs continuing their formal education. She was a nurse of determination and influenced many of the nurses in our community over the years. Both Wenona and Nikki exemplify Edith’s spirit and determination.
