The Barbara Rhomberg Excellence in Nursing Scholarship, sponsored by B4 Brands, is awarded each year to a non-traditional, fulltime student pursuing undergraduate degrees in nursing.  Scholarship winners receive a non-renewable scholarship of $1,000 payable directly to the institution in which they are enrolled, for their Fall 2024 Semester.

Undergraduate nursing programs are those offering an associate or bachelor’s degree in nursing.  Non-traditional students are those students who postponed the pursuit of a college degree after high school, or had their college careers interrupted, and instead entered the workforce, or military or fulfilled a family or non-profit obligation.

About Barbara Rhomberg

The Barbara Rhomberg Excellence in Nursing Scholarship, sponsored by B4 Brands, was founded in 2013 in loving memory of Barbara Rhomberg.  Barbara was raised in rural Iowa and graduated from high school in 1954.  After high school, she attended the College of St. Teresa in Winona, Minnesota to pursue her dream of becoming a nurse.  Barbara’s college education was delayed after her sophomore year, when she fell in love, married and devoted her full attention to her expected family, church and community.

After raising eight children and spending over twenty-five years in the home, Barbara sought to complete her nursing education and begin her career.  She went back to school and earned her nursing degree in 1981.  As a Registered Nurse, Barbara worked at the local hospital and medical clinic in Elkader, Iowa.  She was well known for her skillful nursing, extraordinary compassion, loving smile, and generosity with her time and talents to the whole community.

Barbara Rhomberg was diagnosed with gallbladder cancer in 1994 and passed away in 1995 at the age of fifty-nine.  Although her time on earth was short, she positively impacted many, many lives.
