Northside nurses donate $300,000 for YSU scholarships

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

The Youngstown General Duty Nurses Association, which has represented nurses at Northside Regional Medical Center in Youngstown for more than 50 years, has donated $300,000 to create a scholarship for Youngstown State University nursing students.

Northside Regional Medical Center, which opened in 1929, closed on September 20, 2018. Almost 190 nurses lost their jobs. The YGDNA has represented nurses at Northside since 1966.

According to YGDNA president Lori Hornberger, the association has local dues money in a treasury fund from the past 50 years that they are using to create the scholarship.

Hornberger said that the majority of the money is going to the nursing program, to foster and promote future nurses, as well as to benefit Youngstown and keep the money in the community. 

Most importantly, she said, it promotes nurses, which is what the YGDNA is all about.

The scholarship will begin in 2020.

Hornberger also said that a small portion of the money will go to the Labor Museum in Youngstown, in order to archive some of Union history. The money will also pay for two internships at the museum.
