Sandy Purl Mentorship Scholarship
Sandy Purl was a role model to many oncology nurses in Chicago and across the nation. She always had a smile on her face and a glint in her eye. Her joy was her career as an oncology nurse. Her passion was mentoring other nurses and improving the care of patients with cancer through her work and volunteer activities in the Chicago Chapter of the Oncology Nursing Society. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten. This scholarship, in her memory, will recognize a nurse who demonstrates this type of passion in oncology nursing and wants to mentor other nurses in their chapter.
