During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way. Please say thank you by sharing your story of how a nurse made a difference you will never forget!

The Edwin and Laura Davis Memorial Nursing Scholarship

The scholarship fund for nursing education was established by Edwin and Laura Davis as a living, lasting memorial to support the education of a nurse pursuing further nursing education. Mr. and Mrs. Davis were long time residents of Collingswood, New Jersey. Prior to her death, Mrs. Davis suffered from a long illness that required numerous hospitalizations at Cooper University Hospital. During that time, she was “well cared for by her nurses.” This scholarship fund is a tribute to the art of caring and compassion. Download the Form Here.
