In lieu of flowers please contribute to the Joyce R. Grimaud Cardiovascular Nursing Scholarship (Available for BSN). This scholarship was established by MCG School of Nursing alumna, Dr. Jeannette Andrews, in honor of her aunt, Mrs. Joyce Grimaud, who inspired her to become a nurse. Mrs. Grimaud practiced nursing for 40 years in a variety of roles, including 26 years at the Augusta VA Hospital as a cardiovascular nurse. Mrs. Grimaud epitomizes both the “art” and “science” of nursing and was a highly recognized patient advocate. She had been an inspirational mentor to many nurses, nursing students, and other health professionals across this state. This recognizes a BSN Senior who desires to become a cardiovascular nurse.
