Jean Wood Nursing Scholarship

The Jean Wood Nursing Scholarship was established through Central Washington Hospital Foundation in 2002 and annually provides scholarship support to nursing students at Wenatchee Valley College. Jean Wood entered nurses training at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Wenatchee in 1941. After graduating, she served in the Army Nurse Corps during World War II as a 2nd Lieutenant. Upon her discharge from the service, she continued her nursing career as a registered nurse at St. Anthony’s Hospital and Rosewood Hospitals in Wenatchee, just prior to their becoming Central Washington Hospital. Jean Wood was passionate about her nursing career and this scholarship is her legacy to encourage others to follow in her footsteps.
