Partners in Nursing (PIN)
In 1995, a project called Partners in Nursing (PIN) at Cedar Crest College was launched with a mission to support activities to enhance the education of nursing students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, promote the professional growth and development of nursing faculty and encourage interdisciplinary initiatives on and off campus. Scholarships, recognition awards, lecture series, equipment and other material for nursing education are among the benefits to be provided by the Partners in Nursing.
Today, the PIN Endowed Scholarship fund is greater than $70,000 and a PIN general fund has been established.
