Your support helps nurses continue their education

The Cindy Jarrett-Pulliam Nursing Excellence fund provides financial assistance for Novant Health nurses in Winston-Salem. The fund was started in honor of Cindy Jarrett-Pulliam, beloved nursing leader at Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center, who passed away in November 2019. Recipients can use their awards for tuition, books, child care expenses, car repair or other personal needs while they continue their nursing education.

Brittany James received an award this year to continue her education at the University of Cincinnati, where she is pursuing a nurse practitioner degree. Brittany will use her award for tuition to help relieve the financial burden of studying and working full time. This fund helps Brittany and others because many of you made generous donations in Cindy’s memory.

“I had the pleasure of working with Cindy for many years,” Brittany said. “Her leadership and dedication to nursing were always admirable. Even though she is no longer with us, her memory lives on. It is an honor to pass this leadership on.”

Eight Novant Health team members have received a total of $25,000 to follow in Cindy’s footsteps and pursue a higher level of nursing care for our patients.
