“I’m such a proud nurse, with my focus and drive relating to the caring aspects of nursing, with my ethos being to treat others the way you’d like yourself or your family to be treated.
I’ve had such a fortunate career, and would like to pay it forward, to reward nurses who demonstrate that they genuinely care, on a daily basis, rather than by simply writing a good application. I’d like to set up a scholarship (or my legacy- maybe the (name) award/scholarship) to be used towards the goal of providing better clinical, bedside nursing ‘care’. I’m not sure of the amount to be awarded each year, but this would be funded by a donation in my Will. I have a solicitor ready to finalise the documents, but just need guidance as to how to correctly word it for this to occur.”
