Scholarship Recipients for 2017
SacWoc was able to give away almost $10,000.00 this year to our scholarship recipients. This has been made possible by the many people who put fourth effort and collaboration to put together a nice conference each year. Our organization here in the Sacramento Valley is very strong and our members really care about each other and our WOCN organization. We volunteer our time on each of the committees and we all work together to make our Annual Conference as professional and current as possible. This is our way of giving back to our nursing community and to support our WOCN profession. Thank you for attending our conference and making it possible for us to give scholarships to these very deserving recipients.
