Hammond Nursing Scholarship
The Academy Spinal Cord Injury(SCI) Nurses section, formerly known as the American Association of Spinal Cord Injury Nurses, believes that spinal cord impairment and related disorders are multifaceted, catastrophic experiences for individuals that have implications for families, significant others and society as a whole. SCI nursing, as an art and science, has a primary role in assisting individuals with spinal cord injury/disorder (SCI/D), achieve and maintain an optimum level of physical and psychosocial well-being. Nurses who specialize in the care of the individual with SCI/D are skilled practitioners with current knowledge of the pathophysiological and psychosocial implications of SCI/D, and possess the expertise to deal with the impact of SCI/D on the individual, family and society.
Congratulations to our 2016 Hammond Scholarship recipients!
Recipients of the 2017 Hammond Scholarship will be announced soon.
