UI nursing students named Hartford Scholars

Four University of Iowa College of Nursing predoctoral students have been selected for the John A. Hartford Foundation's Building Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity Scholar program. They are Brianne Black, Heide Bursch, Kari Lane and Jimmy Reyes.

The program offers support for tuition, fees and stipends for each of two years for a total of up to $50,000 per year, which enables awardees to focus on full-time study and honing research and leadership skills. Created to address a nationwide faculty shortage, the program is administered by the American Academy of Nursing and funded by the John A. Hartford Foundation and the Atlantic Philanthropies.
