Brentlinger fellowship supports future leaders in nursing

Brentlinger fellowship supports future leaders in nursing
The Marilyn E. Brentlinger Scholarship Fund for Doctoral Students will support PhD candidates at Case Western Reserve University’s Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing—Particularly those who are interested in being leaders in their profession. The fund was established by Marilyn’s husband, Paul, and their children, Paula, David and Sara, to memorialize their beloved wife and mother, a dedicated nursing instructor at Queen’s Hospital in Honolulu and St. Luke’s Hospital in Cleveland, who passed away in 2010.

Known as the Brentlinger Endowed Legacy Fellowship, the family hopes the fellowship will help develop future leaders in nursing, following Marilyn’s footsteps. “She herself benefited from scholarship support for her nursing studies,” says Paula, a Seattle-based physician and global health expert who is now on the school’s visiting committee. “And the current health care environment in the United States is changing rapidly. There is a greater need for nurses who are prepared to engage in and support nursing education, research, policymaking and advanced clinical practice.”
