About Ralston Nursing Student Awards

We recognize outstanding graduate-level nursing students annually through our Ralston Awards for Gerontology Nursing Excellence. Candidates for the award can be full or part-time students and must have a GPA of 3.50 or higher. They are nominated for academic and clinical excellence for their work in gerontology by faculty leadership at their schools to the Chair of the Ralston Board of Managers Program Planning Committee.

Winners are invited to a spring ceremony and give talks to the Ralston Board of Managers on why they chose geriatric nursing as their specialty. They invite family members and friends and receive a cash award and certificate of recognition at this event.
