Veteran scholarship helps Society nurse continue education

When Army veteran Kalli Koepplin was surprised with a $5,000 military and veteran scholarship from Sanford Health, it meant the world.

“Grad school is expensive. To have that scholarship really eased a lot of stress,” Kalli says. “For Sanford to honor veterans even though they don’t have to, is quite huge.”

Already a full-time RN case manager and clinical lead at the Good Samaritan Society – Robbinsdale Home Health in Minnesota, the 26-year old is striving for more. She’s currently studying for her MSN through the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota.

“I love school. I love learning,” Kalli says. “In my free time I love researching nursing anything. Right now, I’m going to get my master’s in nursing leadership and management.”
