Each year, ONIG sponsors two $1000 RNFOO scholarships for individuals who are interested and studying some element of informatics at the undergraduate or graduate level. This year, we are pleased to announce the winners of the ONIG Scholarships!
Donna Wells RN, BScN
Donna Wells graduated from Sheridan College in 1986 with a diploma in Nursing and started full time at the Mississauga Hospital. She started her family in June 1987 and in order to be at home as much as possible with her three girls, Donna worked various jobs eventually settling into a part time staff nurse at the Scarborough Hospital. She started her BScN in 2000 at Ryerson University and throughout the course of life happening, graduated in 2011. Donna has reached two of her long term goals: getting her BScN as well as becoming a full time healthcare consultant.
