2022 Marna P. Borgstrom and Peter N. Herbert Advanced Nursing Scholarship Recipients

The Marna P. Borgstrom and Peter N. Herbert, MD Advanced Nursing Education Scholarships were established by the grateful family of a patient who received exceptional care at Yale New Haven Hospital and were particularly appreciative for the talented and compassionate nursing staff.

The scholarships provide financial assistance to qualified YNHH nurses who wish to raise their level of expertise and knowledge by obtaining a certification of Nurse Practitioner, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, Doctor of Clinical Practice or similar advanced certification. To date (10 years), this fund has contributed more than $750,000 to advanced nursing education at YNHH.
