Chelsea Murphy has been awarded the Gaye Ross scholarship for 2016 to help with her nursing education. 

"I wrote an essay to say how I'm following in her foot steps as a nurse and then they awarded me with this scholarship to help with my education" stated recipient Chelsea Murphy. "I'm in my third year of my nursing degree so I still have another year of university and I attend school in Kelowna."

Brad Bilson is a homecare Registered Nurse at the hospital who sat on the selection committee and says her essay was well written.  "You could see that the compassion for nursing was evident in her writing and that's basically how we based our decision on" he commented.

The Gaye Ross Scholarship was created in memory of one of the Drumheller Health Centre's finest nurses. Gaye Ross was an active member of the Drumheller community as well as a respected Registered Nurse.  This scholarship has been available for many years and is available to qualified applicants who live within the perimeter determined by the scholarship committee, and who is attending, or will be attending, post-secondary education to become a Registered Nurse or a Registered Psychiatric Nurse. The scholarship was established in 1998 and gives $1000 to those who are choosing a career as a Registered Nurse or as a Registered Psychiatric Nurse.  It's administered by the Drumheller Area Health Foundation.

Congratulations Chelsea!  We look forward to watching you grow in your chosen career.
