Ann W. Nord graduated from the University Of Utah College Of Nursing, and spent a major part of the next forty years working as a hospital-based clinical nurse in Salt Lake City, Utah. Upon retirement she moved to Anacortes with her husband, Dr. Nathaniel M. Nord, where they resided until her passing in 2013.  The family, as well as Ann’s many friends and admirers, established this scholarship to honor Ann and her lifelong appreciation of education, community participation, and seriousness of purpose in her chosen profession.

The scholarship seeks to encourage outstanding Anacortes High School graduates with interest and commitment in the field of nursing to pursue an educational program which stresses the importance of the study of the liberal arts and humanities as a preparation for achieving a Bachelor Of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN) and a career in nursing.
