A $3,000 John (NMN) Coffey/ThanksUSA scholarship is helping Megan Cancel continue Nursing studies at Excelsior College. The spouse of an active-duty Airman stationed in Guam, Megan works as a Registered Nurse contractor at the U.S. Naval Hospital's Family Medicine Clinic while pursuing her BSN.
“It has been a challenge being newly married and living so far away from home in New York. While both my husband and myself are blessed to have jobs, the cost of living in Guam is very high. This scholarship has made a huge difference in my ability to afford school.”
Megan looks forward to pursuing an ambulatory nursing certification and plans to continue her education and earn a Master’s of Science in Nursing with a concentration in healthcare administration. In addition to her studies and work at the medical clinic, Megan volunteers with the USO, teaches Sunday school, and plays piano for her church worship team.
“Thank you for making this scholarship available to children and spouses like myself. You have made an amazing impact on my life!”
