Annie Rhyne Scholarship

The Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing (PHSON) Alumni Association pays tribute to Annie Rhyne and promotes excellence in education by recognizing deserving students who are seeking a nursing degree. Two scholarships per calendar year, in the amount of $3000 each, are available.

Miss Annie Rhyne was a 1917 graduate of the PHSON and worked at Presbyterian Hospital for 48 years. She did the staffing, made rounds and assisted the students from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. She also lived in the dorm until her retirement in 1965. In 1956 the Alumni Association started a loan program in her name to support the students. Today the fund that honors Miss Rhyne’s service is a scholarship.
