University of Washington Graduate Nursing Student, Erin Picolet, receives award!
Bellevue, WA, July 25, 2016 – Nurse.org is pleased to announce that the 2016 Healthcare Leaders Scholarship has been awarded to Ms. Erin Picolet, a student in the University of Washington’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program, Nurse-Midwifery (NM) track.
Picolet hopes to counteract some of the vulnerabilities in the health status of her future patients with a strong understanding of the determining factors that cause them. As a CNM, she will be trained to look at basic and simple interventions to make profound differences. It is this simplicity that she hopes will make changes possible for individuals with limited resources and low health literacy.
“I hope to help create a healthcare system for my population of interest that is not solely based on profits and productivity but one that also nurtures its patients to reach their full health potential and live fulfilled lives,” said Picolet.
As an organization committed to supporting nurses and helping them achieve their career and educational goals, Nurse.org applauds Ms. Picolet for her noble ambitions and will continue to offer the Healthcare Leaders Scholarship on an ongoing basis. Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 scholarship cycle on Nurse.org.

A group of hard-working professionals teamed up with working RNs with one goal: to build the perfect nursing career site. The result is Nurse.org, the only site that shows nurses the inner workings of a hospital before they accept the job.
