First of all thanks to Almighty. For me, it was an unexpected gift in an urgency. As a recipient of the IANANT’s student nurses scholarship, that means a lot for me as an economically backward student nurses. The scholarship application, selection process, and interaction with members were seamless. Such a great organization.
