Congratulations to Lisa Martin, RN, who was recently awarded a PA Directors of Nursing Association (PADONA) Nursing Education Scholarship. Lisa is currently working toward her Bachelors of Science in Nursing degree through Millersville University. To qualify for the scholarship, Lisa needed two letters of recommendation, one from a PADONA member and one of her professors, to be in good standing academically, and submit an essay.

Lisa has spent the last 10 years working at Fairmount in Ephrata. She spent the first nine years as a CNA, then went to school to become a registered nurse. After graduating in 2018, she moved into the position of RN unit supervisor. Her career goals include a deep commitment to the geriatric population, especially working with people who suffer from dementia. She enjoys researching in the fields of psych and dementia, and wants to be able to advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves.
