New York, NY (PRWEB) May 10, 2016

DailyNurse (http://www.dailynurse.com), the nursing news and career website of Springer Publishing Company, has launched the 1st Annual Nursing Leader Scholarship with the help of the nursing advocacy group, Show Me Your Stethoscope (SMYS). The new scholarship, open to applicants on May 12th, will be awarded to a nursing student who has shown extraordinary leadership in promoting safe staffing in the United States. Inspired by this year’s National Nurses Week theme, Culture of Safety—It Starts With You, DailyNurse and SMYS have joined forces to promote, celebrate, and support a future nursing leader who has demonstrated a commitment to safe staffing.

DailyNurse and SMYS are both dedicated to helping all nurses work safely in their profession and the scholarship aims to help one individual continue his or her education and leadership role in promoting causes to help the 3 million nurses in the United States. Said James Costello, Vice President of Professional Journals at Springer Publishing: “As a publisher dedicated to providing nurses with the tools they need to be successful, we are committed to supporting their professional development. We are enthusiastic about the ability of nurses to effect positive change in our evolving health care system and are delighted to be able to launch this new scholarship in order to support the emerging new nurse leaders.”

DailyNurse will be joining SMYS at the Rally for National Nurse-to-Patient Ratios in Washington, DC on May 12, 2016 and will launch the scholarship at the event. Jalil Johnson BSN, MS, ANP-BC National Director of SMYS, noted: “We are excited to partner with a publisher dedicated to helping nursing leaders and our hope is that this scholarship encourages not only the recipient, but other leaders and advocates to promote safe nurse staffing and other causes in the nursing profession.”

This group was formed when Janie Harvey Garner, RN from Missouri asked nurses from far and wide on social media to show her their stethoscopes.
