Hammonds, who expects to graduate with her associate degree in December, volunteers at Presbyterian Hospital Child Life Department and is past secretary and current president of CNM’s Student Nurses Association.

“It’s surreal,” Hammonds said. "I wasn’t expecting it and didn’t know it was such a big prestigious award.”

Four other students from around the state also received Nightingale Nursing scholarships.

The scholarships are funded by the New Mexico Board of Nursing through a grant from the Nurse Excellence Fund.
