The scholarship is sponsored by the BRTC nursing faculty and staff and is awarded to practical nursing students in their second semester of the practical nursing program.  Recipients are chosen based on qualities that exemplify the spirit of caring embodied by Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
