Victor E. Schimmel Memorial Nursing Scholarships
The Camden Group established the Victor E. Schimmel Memorial Nursing Scholarship fund to promote advanced education of tomorrow’s leaders and nursing faculty. We award scholarships yearly to individuals who are currently enrolled in, or have recently been accepted to, a college or university for an advanced degree. All nurse managers, directors, educators, and nursing program faculty are invited to apply.
Victor E. Schimmel, MS, MBA was a vice president at The Camden Group. With more than 20 years of consulting and line management responsibility in the healthcare industry, he had advised continuing care retirement communities, congregate care facilities, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, hospitals, integrated delivery systems, and health plans on a wide range of financial issues.
On December 8, 2000, Victor passed away leaving his wife Sydney and two daughters, Amelia and Joanna. In honor of our friend and colleague, we established the Victor E. Schimmel Memorial Nursing Scholarships. These scholarships are designed to support the advanced educational pursuits of nursing educators and nursing leaders.
Interested applicants can apply through Association of California Nurse Leaders (ACNL).
