The Alumnae Association of the School of Nursing, Toronto General Hospital established this scholarship in 2010 to recognize the School’s graduates and to continue its rich heritage by supporting the education of other nurses in the future.
Prenatal & Parent Education Services Awards
When the Prenatal & Parent Education Services closed in 1992, its Board decided that the remaining assets would be used to establish scholarship and research awards in perinatology, and requested that RNFOO administer the funds.
New in 2013, the Registered Practical Nurses' Association of Ontario is offering awards to encourage RPNs and the patient centred approach to care.
