The Execu|Search Group is pleased to announce the recipient of our 4th annual Master’s of Science in Nursing Scholarship. In conjunction with the Greater New York Association of Healthcare Recruiters, we have awarded Igdalia Lopez-Vazquez of Staten Island, NY with a scholarship of $1,500 to use towards educational expenses.
Lopez-Vazquez is not only a student studying to receive her M.S in Nursing, but also a Nurse Manager of Med/Surg and the IV Team at Lutheran Medical Center who has impressively maintained a 4.0 GPA while working full-time. Lopez-Vazquez was selected for the scholarship based on her education, work background, personal essay, and a letter of reference. In addition to her professional and academic credentials, Lopez-Vazquez is a dedicated member of her community, a mother of two, and a motivated individual who, after 21 years of nursing, is still dedicated to furthering her education in healthcare leadership and management.
“The Execu|Search Group and the Greater New York Association of Healthcare Recruiters are honored that we have this opportunity to support our nursing leaders in their quest for continued education,” said Kelly Mattice, Vice President of The Execu|Search Group’s Health Services division. “We congratulate Igdalia Lopez-Vazquez on this well-deserved recognition and wish her the best of luck in achieving her goals.”
