Dawn Romfo, Director of Nursing at Dakota College thanks everyone who donates and supports the Trinity Health Foundation, “Over the past four years, I have heard from several of my students about how much the scholarship impacts their ability to continue working hard in accomplishing their goal in becoming a nurse. The Nursing Scholarship Endowment is a very noble, generous gift that is given by individuals who truly appreciate and value the nursing profession.” This grant responds to the goal to help ease a nationwide nursing shortage. We congratulate these nursing students on this accomplishment.
