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

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.
