It’s that time of year. Scholarships and awards are open for nominations. As we wrap up summer and enter “back to school” mode, it’s time to do an evaluation on your professional goals and aspirations. It is an opportunity to invest in the radiology nursing community.
I encourage anyone reading this to think about two things: those who have inspired you to be the nurse you are today, and a nurse who you see inspiring others in our profession in the future. Now that you’ve thought about these two people, nominate them for a scholarship or award! We owe it to our colleagues and the radiology nursing profession to invest in those who have invested in us, as well as putting our investment in the future of Imaging Nursing.
We all know a bright nurse who would like to take the CRN exam but just hasn’t gotten around to it, a nurse who you KNOW that would LOVE our annual conference (but you can’t seem to get them to come with you), or someone who you think would reap the benefits of a 1-year membership (but just hasn’t taken the plunge to join). Do them a favor and nominate them today for one of the awards below!
The Association for Radiologic and Imaging Nursing (ARIN) CRN Exam Scholarship Award was established to provide financial assistance to ARIN members who are seeking to become certified radiology nurses. The recipient will receive a complimentary registration for the CRN Exam.
The Association for Radiologic and Imaging Nursing (ARIN) Dorothy Budnek Memorial Scholarship was established to provide financial assistance to ARIN members who have returned to school to advance their nursing education. The recipient will receive a scholarship in the amount of $600.00. Individuals who have been members of ARIN for at least three years are eligible to apply for the Dorothy Budnek Memorial Scholarship.
The Association for Radiologic and Imaging Nursing (ARIN) Charlotte Godwin Scholarship was established to aid with ARIN members to attend the annual Spring Educational Meeting. The recipient will receive a complimentary registration for the annual meeting; in addition, the recipient will receive a complimentary convention registration and a cash scholarship of $200.00 to defray the expense of attending the meeting.
The Helen Malenock Award was established in honor of former ARIN board member Helen Malenock. The award recognizes a dedicated radiologic and imaging nurse through a complimentary membership to ARIN. The recipient of this award exemplified the ideal patient care advocate who is dedicated to quality patient care within an imaging environment
The Radiology Nurse of the Year Award was established in 2006 by the ARIN Board of Directors and is presented to an ARIN member in recognition of outstanding radiology nursing practice as demonstrated through leadership, mentorship, and ongoing professional development. Members of the Board of Directors are not eligible for nomination during their term in office
