Dr. Carolyn Anne Green Memorial Scholarship for Excellence in Nursing
The Dr. Carolyn Anne Green Memorial Scholarship for Excellence in Nursing was established to honor the memory and contributions of Anne Green, PhD, RN. Anne Green taught in the Nursing Program at Solano Community College from 1971 until her untimely death in 1995.
As an instructor in the Nursing Program, Anne taught in every semester of the Nursing Program. She was committed, not only to her students and patients, but also to all of the students enrolled in the Nursing Program. Anne was an innovative instructor, always seeking to bring out the best in her students while simultaneously promoting excellence within the profession. She was the driving force behind the nursing preceptorship in the fourth semester because of her participation in the Kellogg Foundation Nursing Grant. Anne Green also fostered and promoted in-depth collaboration between nursing service and nursing education, resulting in the development of the Clinical nursing performance Nursing exams administered at Solano Community College.
As a result of her dedication and commitment to nursing and nursing education, the graduates of Solano’s Nursing program are sought after and recognized as being skilled professionals. This scholarship is awarded annually to the graduating nurse who not only has attained a high GPA but also reflects the high aspirations of the nursing field and possesses the capacity to be a force in the future of Nursing.
