With the support of this fund, students have special opportunities to enhance their knowledge and skills in the area of psychiatric mental health nursing.
The Coletta A. Klug Fund provides awards to support undergraduate and graduate students who wish to enhance their knowledge and clinical skills in psychiatric mental health nursing, thereby promoting career development in this specialty area of nursing practice.
The award is presented to one or more students who submit successful proposals for research, educational or travel activities. Students can use the award to defray expenses associated with their activity, such as the cost of collecting data, reimbursing participants in a study, registering for a conference, or traveling to a workshop. The award can also be used for other professional activities, such as obtaining professional training related to psychiatric-mental health nursing.
