Judith Langer Merlin Scholarship for APNA Education

Judi was a pioneer in our industry having started A Friend of the Family in Atlanta over 30 years ago. She was a founding member of APNA, the first co-president, and a long-time board member. Her loss leaves a void for many who knew her and were touched in some way by her generous spirit, gentle soul and faithful friendship.

In her honor, APNA has created the Judith Langer Merlin Scholarship for APNA Education.

APNA Honors was created as a way to recognize our members for service and achievements in our industry. Each year a committee reviews nominations and selects those members that have strive to provide quality service that meets or exceeds APNA standards.
