News: 2012-05-24 NPO Renames Scholarship in Honor of Nanette Clapper

Nurse Practitioners of Oregon Renames Scholarship in Honor of Nanette Clapper, NP Pioneer and Leader

The Nurse Practitioners of Oregon (NPO) announced that the NPO Scholarship has been renamed in honor of one of the profession’s leaders and visionaries. Nanette Clapper, a Nurse Practitioner in the Portland area for more than 30 years and previous Chair of the Nurses Practitioners of Oregon, passed away on September 11, 2011 at her home in Lake Oswego. In honor of her contributions to the profession of Nursing and the advancement of the state’s Nurse Practitioners, NPO has renamed the NPO Scholarship the NPO Nanette Clapper Memorial Scholarship.

The scholarship provides financial assistance to a selected student in a Nurse Practitioner program of study as a means of developing future Nurse Practitioner leaders. Applicants must be a member of the Oregon Nurses Association in good standing and be enrolled in an accredited NP program.

In addition to announcing the change in name, NPO is also seeking donations to the fund to help ensure that future Nurse Practitioner students will have access to support from the scholarship.

  • Donations, in memory of Nanette Clapper, can be made by check to the Oregon Nurses Foundation (NPO Nanette Clapper Scholarship) and mailed to the Oregon Nurses Foundation, 18765 SW Boones Ferry Road, Suite 200, Tualatin, OR 97062.

The Oregon Nurses Foundation is also seeking donations for the Centennial Scholarship. Founded in 2004 to commemorate the centennial of the Oregon Nurses Association, the Centennial Scholarship is awarded to individuals who are accepted and enrolled in a nursing program of study. It is open to any student from any accredited program and is given out in $1,000 awards.

  • Donations to the Centennial Scholarship program can be made by check to the Oregon Nurses Foundation (Centennial Scholarship) and mailed to the Oregon Nurses Foundation, 18765 SW Boones Ferry Road, Suite 200, Tualatin, OR 97062.
