This year the Miriam Powell Scholarship went to La Monica Hunter, who has chosen to study in the Nursing MSN-Nurse Educator Program at Chamberlain College in Naperville, Il. La Monica, mother of three boys, has spent the last five of her twelve-year nursing career caring for neonates. As a Clinical Nurse IV in the Duke Regional Hospital Special Care Nursery, she currently serves on four councils: The Nursery Patient Council, Quality Council, Education Council, and The Health System Charge Nurse Council. Her long-term plan is to study in an adult education PhD program with special focus on health professions.
