The medical staff at Beebe Medical Center recognizes the support of nursing education as a very important component of its mission in the promotion and delivery of healthcare in Sussex County.
The Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Medical Center, formerly the Beebe School of Nursing, has a long and proud history and tradition of excellence in nursing education. It remains the only community hospital-based institution in the state of Delaware to continue to fulfill this mission.
The Beebe medical staff created the Nursing Scholars program to support the nursing education of eligible candidates at the school, which includes the candidate’s expressed intention of working in the local community after graduation.
The scholarship recognizes exceptional clinical performance in nursing, in accordance with the criteria established by the school's Students Services Committee.
Two senior students are the recipients of the scholarship this year.
Alexa Baich is native Sussex Countian and lives in Rehoboth with her husband and daughter. She wanted to attend the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing because it offers a challenging, hands-on experience and because she wants to be the best nurse she can be.
Becoming a nurse is a second career option for Amy Cosgrove. She enjoyed her clinical experience in the Women’s Health unit at Beebe Medical Center and hopes to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing and to become credentialed as an obstetrics nurse.
Both Baich and Cosgrove have worked as nurse techs while attending the Rollins School of Nursing.
