Gerry Sanderson Education Fund

Meet Kelley  – Hospice Case Manager

It was never the right time, but it was an opportunity she could not pass up. Kelley  was working nights as a Hospice Nurse. She had been a nurse for nearly 15 years. She was also focused on her two small children’s busy school and sports schedules and caring for her family. As a third-generation nurse, she had a passion for her profession and her patients. She also wanted to further her education, but kept putting it off.

One day, a flyer in her NVNA and Hospice mailbox got her attention. An anonymous donor had established a $250,000 scholarship fund in honor of their NVNA and Hospice Nurse, Kelly’s colleague, Gerry Sanderson. Kelley took a leap, applied for the scholarship, and was selected by a committee of her peers. She applied and was accepted to UMASS Boston. And, so it began.

“It is a struggle of when to do it. It is hard to come up with the money for the extras – it was a big chunk. We all (her cohorts) have families and little kids or kids in college. It was a hefty price tag, but big opportunity,” said Kelley.

Today, Kelley is in her third semester with UMASS Boston’s RN to BSN program. She attends lectures here in the Norwell office and does coursework online. She says that the other colleagues in her class have been supportive and have become great friends. Kelley is on track to graduate next summer.

When asked what advice she would give other NVNA and Hospice clinicians thinking about applying to the Gerry Sanderson Education Fund Kelley said “Just do it. There is never a ‘right time.’ It is very flexible. Just take the leap. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.”

In addition to the RN to BNS program Kelley also got financial assistance to get re-certified in Hospice and Palliative Care.

“I would not have been able to financially do this without the fund. It is changing my career path and making me think I want to keep going. It will open more doors,” said Kelley.

Interested in learning more? Please speak to your manager about how the Gerry Sanderson Education fund might support your education.

Student Nurses – Teaching for Our Future

We are so grateful that our nurses share their skill and compassion with students. Our UMASS Boston and MGH Institute for Health Professionals teams recently presented to both our staff and our patients.

Thanks to our nurses Gerry Sanderson, Liz Daly and Melissa Thompson for guiding this great group of UMASS Boston Nursing Students. Today, they presented about the role of the caregiver in preventing hospital readmissions.
