Date:9/24/2007

PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The New Jersey Hospital Association's Health Research and Educational Trust (HRET) has awarded four health career scholarships to Mindy Melina Michel of Jackson, Tonya Jones of Eatontown, Gail Silberman of Passaic and Susan Doyle-Lindrud of Basking Ridge.

Since 1983, HRET has awarded health career scholarships as part of its goal to encourage New Jersey residents to pursue health careers. More than $150,000 has been awarded to promising students. To qualify for the scholarship, applicants must be in an accredited undergraduate or graduate health career program, maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or better and demonstrate financial need to qualify for the scholarships. This year, HRET added another scholarship for nurses continuing their education to become nursing faculty. Each student will receive $2,000 to continue their education.

Recipient Mindy Melina Michel is studying nursing at the University of Scranton. She found her interest in nursing when her grandmother had a stroke and entered a nursing home. Michel became an LPN and shortly after decided to continue her education to attain her RN-BSN. In her application she stated that her goal is to be a nurse with "the desire to help people, one patient at a time."

Recipient Tonya Jones is a graduate student majoring in healthcare administration with a focus on improving the health and well-being of vulnerable populations. Attending Georgetown University, she maintains a 4.0 grade point average, as she did at Rutgers University as an undergrad. Her goal is to continue her education to the doctorate level in leadership development and return to work in New Jersey.

Scholarship recipient Gail Silberman, is a second-year student at Kean University majoring in occupational therapy. She has an undergraduate degree from Touro College in psychology. Silberman continues to work part-time as a billing supervisor at an early intervention therapy agency. Involved in her community, she is a "Big Sister," runs a youth outreach program and volunteers with disabled youth. She plans to specialize in geriatrics.

The 2007 nursing educator recipient is Susan Doyle-Lindrud, a doctoral student at Columbia University (DrNP) and a nurse practitioner at the Gallo Prostate Cancer Center, Cancer Institute of New Jersey, New Brunswick. Upon completing her doctorate, she plans to continue her clinical role while seeking faculty employment. Dr. Robert DiPaola, professor of medicine and chief, Division of Medical Oncology says, "She is setting a new standard of care for advance practice nursing at CINJ."

"Once again, we are pleased that we have found bright and committed minds to carry on our healthcare system's tradition of caring and excellence," said NJHA President and CEO Gary Carter. "These scholarship recipients are a fine example of healthcare's future from an exceptional pool of candidates."

Based in Princeton, NJHA has been providing its members with advocacy, information, research and education since 1918.
