Three senior nursing students from the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Healthcare have been awarded scholarships from the Medical Staff Nursing Scholar’s Program.

Kasey McNatt of Middletown, Lucy Siranides of Lewes, and Kaitlyn Stahre of Harrington were named recipients, in recognition of their exceptional clinical performance in nursing. All three students chose to pursue their education at the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing because of its reputation as a rigorous program that successfully trains nurses to build superior clinical skills. In addition, they recognize that the school’s graduates consistently have high pass rates on the Registered Nurse licensure exam. McNatt, Siranides, and Stahre all plan to pursue higher education once they have graduated from Beebe.

Beebe’s Medical Staff created the Nursing Scholar’s program to support nursing education for students who have expressed intention of working in Sussex County after graduation. Criteria for selection of annual scholarship winners was established by the Students Services Committee of the School of Nursing.

The Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Healthcare, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2021, is accredited by The Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and is a designated Center of Excellence in Nursing Education by the National League for Nursing (NLN). The Diploma in Professional Nursing is awarded at the completion of the curriculum, qualifying graduates to be eligible for the National Council of State Boards of Nursing NCLEX examination, leading to licensure as a registered nurse.

Beebe graduates consistently have the highest NCLEX pass rates in the state. The School of Nursing has a long and proud history and tradition of excellence in nursing education and remains the only community hospital-based institution in the State of Delaware to continue to fulfill this mission.
