Ashley Weinman, a student in Wilmington University’s dual Doctor of Nursing Practice and Master of Business Administration program, was awarded a $20,000 scholarship from the New Jersey League for Nursing (NJLN).  The scholarship honors the legacy of Maureen Sullivan Foley, who served as president of the NJLN from 1986 to 1988 and president/CEO of the Bayonne Visiting Nurses Association for nearly 50 years. 

Scholarship award applicants must be permanent in-state New Jersey residents enrolled in an accredited nursing program. They also must have completed at least one semester in an accredited degree nursing program (B.S.N., M.S.N. or doctorate) and earned at least a 3.0 GPA. They should also intend to practice nursing in New Jersey after attaining their degree and be a current, active member of NJLN.  

Weinman, a palliative care nurse practitioner at the MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper Health in Camden, New Jersey, is nationally board-certified as a family nurse practitioner, adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner, and advanced certified hospice and palliative care nurse. A leader at Cooper Health, she co-chairs the Advanced Practice Provider Council, representing and advancing practice initiatives for nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists, clinical nurse specialists, and physician assistants. 

She maintains a 4.0 GPA and will complete the dual degree program in May of 2024. Through her doctoral coursework and evidence-based practice project, Weinman intends to embrace advice from her mother, a Camden City school teacher, to leave the world better than she found it. She will address health, social, and financial disparities to accomplish this goal.
