Ozarka Scholarship Established in Honor of Joseph Bowser

The Ozarka Foundation is pleased to announce a new scholarship opportunity for Ozarka students interested in hospice care.  The Bowser-Petersen Nursing scholarship is offered by Drs. Robert E. and Cheryl Bowser Petersen of Horseshoe Bend, AR.  It is available to LPN’s currently enrolled in the Ozarka RN program and is given in gratitude for the exceptional care given to Joseph T. Bowser whose last days were blessed by his hospice nurses. 

In addition to the regular Ozarka scholarship application, applicants for this scholarship will be required to complete either a one page essay or a short recorded message describing what they know about hospice nursing and why they think they would be good at hospice work. Overall GPA and citizenship will also be considered in awarding this scholarship.
