Genevieve Renn Roscher Nursing Scholarship

Purpose

To promote careers in the nursing profession by awarding scholarships to students pursing a degree as a Registered Nurse.

Background

The Genvieve Renn Roscher Nursing Scholarship Program was established in 2005 in memory of Genevieve Renn Roscher, by her husband, Frederick A. Roscher, Jr. Genny, as her friends called her, was a registered nurse at John Randolph Hospital for over 40 years. During this period, she worked in nearly every position a nurse can hold at the hospital. She is remembered as a wonderfully giving, kind and gentle nurse who touched the lives of many in the community. As the mother of six children, Genny's dedication to nursing was exceeded only by her devotion to her family.
