Euisun Field of Dallas is the winner of the fourth Andrea Patterson Memorial Scholarship, given by the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT). Field is a student enrolled in the Polysomnographic Technology program at Collin College in McKinney, Tex. “As a full time student with a full time job as a patient care technician, I’m actively preparing myself with the skills and knowledge from both work and school to provide the best possible care for patients in need of good sleep,” Field says in a release. Field also noted that, moving forward, she will need to cut down on her work hours to meet her academic and clinical requirements. “This scholarship signifies a ‘green light’ to me. I’m grateful for this honor as it will help me focus on my studies while providing financial support for tuition and books.”
The Andrea Patterson Memorial Scholarship Program, named in honor of an early and highly regarded leader in the field of sleep technology, awards a $2,500 tuition grant each year to a promising student of polysomnography. Scholarship applicants must be enrolled in or accepted by a CAAHEP-accredited program in PSG or a CoARC-accredited program with a PSG add-on. BRPT President Theresa Krupski, RPSGT, RRT, says: “Euisun’s application detailed a very well thought out plan for pursuing a career as a Polysomnographic Technologist and she expressed great excitement about entering a growing field with numerous opportunities.” For more information, visit the BRPT’s website.
