Scholarships In Nursing Open Continuation in 1957 of the nurses' scholarship program of the Iowa division of the American Cancer Society was announced today by Mr Henry B. Hook of Davenport, president. For the ninth consecutive year 50 nursing scholarships will be made available to young Iowa women. This reoresents six per cent of the annual Iowa first year nursing student classes. First in the nation to set up such a program, the Iowa division now has 140 nurse trainees attending 24 nursing schools in Iowa. In addition, 204 nurses granted scholarships in 1949, 1950, 1951. 1952 and 1953 have been graduated. Aimed at relieving the critical nursing shortage in Iowa, the scholarships are part of a long range program to expand the Society's service for needy cancer patients.
