The Johnson & Johnson Andrea E. Higham Memorial Nursing Scholarship honors a true champion for nurses and was created in her memory.
During her tenure at Johnson & Johnson, Andrea E. Higham ardently advanced the nursing profession, most notably by spearheading the Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future from 2002 to 2017.
This campaign aimed to inspire more individuals to embrace nursing, offering vast financial and educational support, including scholarships, mentorship, and advertising.
A significant part of Andrea’s impact was her collaboration with the Foundation of the National Student Nurses Association, generating over $15 million for nursing scholarships and grants. Andrea emphasized accessible nursing education.
Though she’s greatly missed, her dedication to nursing continues through this endowed scholarship.
