Inspiring the Next Generation of Nurses

Scholarships let you know you’re going to make a difference—you’re going to be the change that’s needed.

Nursing Dreams

Scholarship donors impact the lives of nursing students every day. 

When Zakhari Snow, a scholarship student at Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College, was only four years old, he was admitted to St. Louis Children’s Hospital with an undetermined illness and ended up undergoing surgery to repair a congenital heart defect.

Although many of his memories from that time are hazy, one remains very clear: his nurse. He credits her with figuring out what was making him sick.

“That nurse really, really impacted me,” he says. “She gave me the life I have now by simply doing her job. I want to be that nurse.”

Today, Zakhari is on his way to fulfilling that dream at Goldfarb thanks to a scholarship awarded by The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital. And scholarship donors like Anna Harris make it all possible.
