10/11/10 Ancilla College nursing students Kelsey Kosinski and Gina Landis were honored recently at the 6th Annual Scholarship Benefit Luncheon hosted by Nursing 2000 North at Aberdeen Manor in Valparaiso.

 Both Kosinski and Landis were amongst 11 students from nine colleges who were honored at the September 17 luncheon.

 Recipients of the scholarships are chosen on a basis of several criteria – GPA, financial need, and results of an essay and interview process.

 “We’re very pleased two of our talented Ancilla College nursing students were chosen for this award, which further supports that Ancilla College nursing is second to none,” said Ann Fitzgerald, Chair of the Division of Nursing and Health Science at Ancilla College.  “We’re very pleased of these students’ achievements.”
