Barbara Rosfjord Scholarship
Nurses have the rare ability to touch the lives of countless individuals. Every day, they provide comfort and care that cushions the hurt and encourages hope. Barbara Rosfjord was one of those nurses, known for her sustained and high levels of caring and commitment to the profession. Barbara’s daughter, Mary Jo (Rosfjord) Keith, was so inspired by her mother’s work that she followed in her footsteps.
Mary Jo graduated from the University of Iowa with her B.S.N. in 1976, and later completed her M.B.A. and M.S.N., also at the UI. In 2014, Mary Jo and her husband, Kevin (MBA 2004), established the Barbara Rosfjord Scholarship Fund to honor Mary Jo’s mother and her dedicated work as a nursing professional. Because of their generosity, Barbara’s legacy of commitment and top-quality care will live on forever here at Iowa, inspiring future generations of nurse leaders for years to come. The Barbara Rosfjord Scholarship Fund supports one or more annual scholarships to deserving students in the University of Iowa College Of Nursing.
