Recognizing and supporting dynamic, courageous, and inspired nurse leaders.
The Lois Price Spratlen Foundation provides scholarships and community grants to psychiatric ARNPs who demonstrate the character, energy, and courage exemplified by Lois Price Spratlen, founding member of AAPPN.
The Lois Price Spratlen Foundation identifies, encourages, and cultivates excellence in Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nursing; because when we care for those in need, we care for ourselves.
The Lois Price Spratlen Foundation used to be the scholarship arm of AAPPN. The scholarship arm operated as an integrated part of AAPPN until 2016, when the Lois Price Spratlen Foundation was created by a group of dedicated AAPPN members.
Lois Price Spratlen was an educator and mentor for Advance Practice Psychiatric Nurses. She pressed for advanced practice psych nurses to create abstracts and foster a sharing of information for the purpose of educating one another, rather than relying on other disciplines to teach us. She encouraged and modeled mentorship and scholarship, as well as excellence, at every opportunity.
When you attend a Lois Price Spratlen Foundation function, it is clear that her passion for helping others achieve the same humble greatness that she embodied still lives on in the hearts of those who knew her.
