Nurses Educational Funds, Inc.
Honors Madeline A. Naegle

Nurses Educational Funds, Inc. has initiated a campaign to raise money for a mental health nursing scholarship honoring Madeline A. Naegle, PhD, CNS-PMH, RN, BC, FAAN, national and international nursing leader in mental health/substance abuse education, research, and practice.

Dr. Madeline Naegle is a psychotherapist in private practice in New York City. She is a recipient of two Fulbright Awards, and directs the WHO Collaborating Center in Geriatric Nursing Education at Rory Meyers College of Nursing, New York University. She also serves as a global mental health consultant on substance abuse and aging issues. Dr. Naegle’s teaching career began in 1972 and includes the establishment of the psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner program and substance abuse specialty sequence at NYU Meyers. She is the founding editor of the Journal of Addictions Nursing.

Currently there are very few scholarships specifically for graduate mental health nursing and NEF plans to raise enough funds to eventually establish a $50,000 permanent Madeline A. Naegle Scholarship.  From that permanent fund, an annual scholarship can be awarded to graduate nursing students specializing in mental health nursing.

Nurses Educational Funds, Inc. is extremely proud to honor Dr. Naegle’s life work by establishing a permanent scholarship in her name.
