Dan Mordecai Educational Scholarship Award


The NONL Nursing Scholarship was established in 2002 through a contribution in memory of Dan Mordecai, a dear friend of Nursing.  This initial award has served to establish annual scholarships of $1000 each for selected nurses seeking nursing degrees.


The Nevada Organization of Nurse Leaders (NONL) promotes and advances nursing education at the undergraduate and graduate levels, with special emphasis on the nurse manager and nurse executive roles. Research has identified staff nurse satisfaction correlates with positive nursing leadership experiences and serves as an important factor towards staff nurse retention. Undergraduate and graduate nursing education is expensive and demanding for nurses who often work and have family responsibilities while pursuing their education.


Three (3) $1,000.00 scholarships will be awarded, one for each level;
  • BSN,
  • MSN,
  • and Phd/DNP; 
check payable directly to each awardee.
