Nursing Celebration is nurses celebrating nursing. Since
1991, District 9 has paused to annually recognize 20 outstanding
nurses and to award nursing scholarships and research grants.
Over 400 nurses have been recognized and more than $40,000
in scholarships and grants have been awarded. In 2009, the Texas Nurses District 9 Foundation was created, in hopes that the non-profit status would expand the current scholarship and grant program.
Nurses from all areas of practice such as patient care,
education, research and administration are recognized. All
nurses from the District 9 area are eligible; they do not
have to be members of TNA. Colleagues, families and friends
complete nomination forms and submit them for blind review.
A panel then reviews the nominations and selection is based
on multiple criteria.
The scholarships are given to promising students that are
members of the Texas Nursing Student Association or RNs
that are members of TNA District 9. The grants are awarded
to RNs that are members of TNA District 9 who are engaged
in research, either at their place of employment or as criteria
for an academic degree. Each scholarship and grant is submitted
for blind review and graded by a panel based on multiple
Scholarship and research monies will be given out at our Nursing Celebration 2013, scheduled for Thursday, November 7, 2013 at the Hilton Houston Westchase.
Please join us as we celebrate the exceptional nurses we
have amongst us and the dynamic profession of nursing.
