Betsy Prescott Memorial Nursing Scholarship Fund Established


The Massachusetts Nurses Association Committee at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, with the assistance of the Massachusetts Nurses Foundation, has established a scholarship fund to honor the memory of our recently departed sister Betsy Prescott, RN.

Betsy dedicated 32 years of her life as nurse at St. Elizabeth’s, where she was deeply respected and loved by countless RNs and other fellow healthcare workers and patients.  For many years, her fellow RNs showed their respect for Betsy’s passionate advocacy for patients and staff by electing her Chair of the St. Elizabeth’s MNA Committee. 

In tribute to her dedication to the nursing profession and to the cause of winning a better future for workers, the St. Elizabeth’s Committee believes it is a most fitting tribute that contributions to the Fund be awarded annually to people seeking to enter the nursing profession, by aiding in their tuition.

The Betsy Prescott Memorial Nursing Scholarship Fund is administered through the Massachusetts Nursing Foundation (MNF), a tax deductible 501(c)(3). 

To contribute, please mail your check to the MNF earmarked in the memo to the “Betsy Prescott Memorial Nursing Scholarship Fund”.  Massachusetts Nurses Foundation, INC., 340 Turnpike Street, Canton, Massachusetts 02021.
