The Louisiana Federation of Licensed Practical Nurses will recognize the hard work and dedication of our PN student members with a $200 scholarship with the following prerequisites:
(1) Senior PN Students must have become a LFLPN member at least six months before the scholarship is given.
(2) An instructor from one of the Practical Nursing programs in Louisiana must have calculated a GPA of 4.0 for the most recent semester prior to Convention or Workshop and sent us the name of the student by March 1 before our convention or November 1 before our Workshop. This would target those preparing to graduate in May or in December.
(3) We will present the check at the Convention for May graduates; at the Workshop for December graduates.
(4) There will be no duplication of scholarship funds during one person's enrollment in the PN program.
