Eva Vraspir Excellence in Nursing Award


Distinguished Alumni Awards

The MSUM Alumni Foundation seeks to recognize and honor accomplished alumni. We are proud of your success, and in turn, proud of the role MSUM has played in your lives. While many are deserving of recognition, only a select few are chosen each year. Each recipient exemplifies the high standards we have come to expect from graduates of Minnesota State University Moorhead and each has made significant contributions to the communities where they reside and work.


Background on the Eva Vraspir Excellence in Nursing Alumni Award

The Eva Vraspir Excellence in Nursing Award has been granted since Professor Vraspir retired as Director of the Nursing program in 1989 in her honor.  The RN to BSN program at Moorhead State University was started at the request of nurses in the region who desired the BSN but were unable to travel for coursework.  Prof. Vraspir established the program and set the high expectations of faculty and students that are still maintained.  There are over 1200 graduates from the RN to BSN program, all of whom have benefitted from her vision and guidance.

Nancy Stock, BSN, FNP will receive this honor at the 2014 Alumni Awards Banquet on September 26, 2014. 
Nancy Stock ’86  is a rural nurse practitioner for Sanford Health, working in the Mahnomen area.  Stock is certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and graduated from the University of Minnesota in ’96 with a master’s degree.  She is currently working on her DNP as well! Nursing runs in the family, as Stock’s daughter also attended MSUM for the nursing program.
We are delighted to celebrate Nancy’s leadership, and congratulate her on being chosen for this distinguished honor and recognition.
