Nursing Scholarship Advances Careers

Cathy Mullane, RN, MSN

Supporting enhanced nursing education is personal to Cathy Mullane, RN, MSN, at NorthShore Evanston Hospital. She began her career 30 years ago as a patient care technician (PCT), received her RN, and in 2014 received a nursing scholarship to help her obtain her Master of Science in Nursing. 

Mullane is a Clinical Nurse Manager at the 4 South Observational Unit, where she manages 41 staff members and oversees the care of post-operative patients. She, herself, now supports that same scholarship fund that was so vital to her own successful career progression at NorthShore.

You, too, can show your appreciation to your favorite NorthShore nurse with a gift during National Nurses Week, May 6–12.

“I have had a lot of people support me in my work and education—and by contributing to the Nursing Scholarship Fund, I honor those people who helped and mentored me. I make donations in their names,”’ said Mullane.

For Mullane, continuing education for nurses is so important in the healthcare community. “Going to school opens your thoughts and ideas.”

Mary Keegan, RN, MS, NorthShore's Chief Nursing Officer, agrees. “As professionals, nurses have an obligation to continue to expand their knowledge base, build new skills and stay current in the latest developments in the field. Continuing education drives this ongoing development to ensure we deliver evidence-based and compassionate care for our patients.”

“We are thankful to the many grateful patients and donors who fund scholarship and professional development opportunities through the Nursing Scholarship Fund and the new Nancy T. Semerdjian Nursing Excellence Fund,” said Keegan.
