NPO Nanette Clapper Memorial Scholarship for Students in Nurse Practitioner Education Programs

The Nurse Practitioners of Oregon (NPO) supports the education of our colleagues whether they are RNs seeking to become an NP or an NP who is furthering his/her education.

The NPO Nanette Clapper Memorial Scholarship was established to support emerging NP leaders and foster the connection to NPO/ONA. The scholarship also is another very tangible way that membership supports the nurse practitioners in Oregon and promotes professional growth of the NP community.

The 2017 scholarship cycle will open in spring 2017.

If you have any questions about the scholarship or problems with the application form, please email us at NPO@oregonrn.org
