Recipients of the Jane Delano Student Nurse Scholarship and their Red Cross units are notified by the Office of the Chief Nurse. A unit may be a chapter; Humanitarian Services region; Blood Services region; Preparedness, Health, and Safety Services territory; or Service to the Armed Forces station.
