Professional Caretakers 2017 Spring Scholarship Recipient Selected

Professional Caretakers is proud to announce the Spring 2017 scholarship recipient.

First, we would like to thank the hundreds of applicants from all over Texas and the country that applied for our nursing scholarship this semester. While there was an overwhelming response in applications from hundreds of dedicated students pursuing their nursing education, there was one applicant that stood out from the rest. Professional Caretakers would like to congratulate Kristi Reed as the recipient of the Professional Caretakers Nursing Scholarship Award, Spring 2016. Kristi Reed is a current nursing student attending Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas.

Applicants for the 2017 Nursing scholarship award were asked to answer two questions in essay format:
1. Why are you pursing a Nursing degree?

2. If you could change one thing about the USA healthcare system what would it be and how would you propose implementing the change?

Kristi is pursing her education in nursing with the aspiration of joining the armed forces to serve as an Active Duty Registered Nurse in the Army Nurse Corps.

“I am finding that, personally, that there can be no greater purpose than serving others and helping those to find hope in every situation regardless of how badly it may seem at the time. When life is good, I want to be the nurse that rejoices with my patients. When life is difficult and my patients struggle, I want to be a nurse that encourages my patients to never give up on themselves, life, and always believe in a greater good.” – Kristi Reed


We thank Kristi Reed for her dedication to medical care and congratulate her on being the Spring 2017 recipient of the Professional Caretakers Nursing Scholarship Award. We wish her the best in her future endeavors and look forward to her continued success wherever her education and passion in nursing takes her.

Scholarship recipients are given a sum amount of $750 per semester over 2 semesters to relieve a part of cost towards tuition and books as they complete their education in the nursing field. For more information on our scholarships or to apply please see our website at
