RUC-Rita M. Bishop Scholarship

This scholarship was established to honor Rita M. Bishop, R.N., B.S.N., by friends upon her retirement. She dedicated her career (over 35 years) to operating room services. Her work served to promote operating room nursing education and recognition. Mrs. Bishop was always forward thinking and kept “her OR’s” on the forefront of technology, nursing practice and excellent patient care processes.
