BD/C.R. Bard Nursing Scholarship
Fairleigh Dickinson University
Major: Nursing

As a child, Heather Clapp battled and overcame a hematological disorder. The outstanding care she received inspired her to pursue a career in nursing. After completing a summer externship at Morristown Medical Center, Heather says, “Nurses provide comfort in our most vulnerable moments. They are there with us from the moment that we take our last. They are the backbones of healthcare. To me, nursing isn’t just a major. It is my calling in life.”
