Virginia Henderson Fellows Program
Hundreds of STTI members and friends of nursing have made a Virginia Henderson Fellow donation since this special giving program was introduced in honor of the beloved and esteemed Virginia Avenel Henderson (1897-1996). To become a fellow, you may choose to pledge US $2,000 annually for five consecutive years — payable on a schedule that meets your needs — or make a one-time cash donation of US $10,000.
