A nurse who recently died from cancer has left $100,000 to be shared by nursing education programs at two Little Rock hospitals, reports the Associated Press.
Officials at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and Arkansas Children’s Hospital announced Thursday that the gift came from the late Pam McMillan. The release says McMillan worked in the newborn intensive care units at both institutions for nearly 30 years and left $50,000 to each of the infant ICUs at the hospitals.
The medical co-director of the NICU at UAMS is Dr. Kristine Palmer, who said McMillan was one of the unit’s most experienced and best educated nurses. Palmer said McMillan’s bequest would help other nurses attain the same high ethical and professional standards that McMillan displayed.
