We are pleased to share that Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare has announced the recipient of this year’s Mary Bussiere Nursing Education Scholarship. Pace Pfenning is this year’s recipient and will receive a $1,000 scholarship as she works to complete her graduate nursing degree.
Pace received her RN diploma in 1986 and has worked as a nurse at Gillette for 26 years. She has worked on the inpatient floor and outpatient clinics and is currently an outpatient clinic manager. In 2015, she earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Bethel University. She is now enrolled at Capella University, working toward a Master of Science in Nursing Leadership and Management.
As a colleague wrote in Pace’s reference letter, “Pace is a terrific nurse leader and has played a pivotal role in the advancement of the nursing profession at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare.”
We are honored to support the nursing profession at Gillette, a place Mary was proud to work and displayed a passion for care of her patients.
