Abbey Cleveland

Scholarship Helps Student Nurse Follow Her Dream

I want to make my scholarship donor proud by being the kind of nurse that he would want for his family.

Abbey Cleveland, a student at Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College and scholarship recipient, is grateful for the opportunity to focus on her studies rather than finances.

When her grandmother and mother became ill in a short time span, Abbey was inspired by the compassion and dedication of the nurses caring for their entire family. She decided to follow in their footsteps and enroll at Goldfarb.

“You’re going to remember the nurse that sat down with you, that spoke to you and your family, that looked you in the eye, held your hand,” Abbey says. “And that’s the kind of nurse I know I’m going to be.”

She continues: “Scholarships are important to nursing students because having one less thing to worry about is awesome. You can focus on studying more, you can focus on the things that matter. I want to make my scholarship donor proud by being the kind of nurse that he would want for his family.”
