UW-Green Bay and the Professional Program in Nursing are looking for your help to fund the Mimi and Ken Kubsch Endowed Scholarship to support our nursing students. Dr. Sylvia (Mimi) Kubsch, along with the help of Sweet Willow Naturals of Green Bay, has developed a Lavender Lullaby Aromatherapy Spritzer. Dr. Kubsch’s interest in holistic nursing, and her belief that nurses should understand and use integrative healthcare with patients/families, was the creative force behind creating the essential oil with benefits for relaxation and sleep. Your purchase of this spritzer helps support the Kubsch scholarship while providing you with an evidence-based relaxation/sleep support tool that doesn’t have the side effects of many other options available on the market today.
Cost of the spritzer is $9.95 a bottle. $2 from your purchase of each bottle is a tax-deductible donation to the Kubsch Endowed Scholarship. The spritzer can be purchased at the following locations:
- Sweet Willow Naturals
- Mail order option available
- The Phoenix Bookstore
- Will be available for online purchase in the near future
- Professional Program in Nursing Office
- Rose Hall 325, UW-Green Bay
The Mimi and Ken Kubsch Endowed Scholarship has been created to recognize Dr. Mimi Kubsch and her late husband. Mimi and Kenny’s commitment to nursing education and healthcare has led to establishing the endowed scholarship. Scholarships have been available to less than 2% of UW-Green Bay nursing students. The average UW-Green Bay graduate has an average of $26,000 in loan debt. By making a Nursing Degree more affordable for students, the talent and quality of the healthcare community will flourish.
Dr. Sylvia (Mimi) Kubsch began her career at UW-Green Bay in 1980 when she was hired to develop the RN to BSN program. She has been instrumental in expanding the program, making it available online with the BSN@HOME program for Wisconsin students in 1995 and then BSN-LINC in 2000 for students across the U.S. Most recently, she assisted in starting the UW-Green Bay MSN Program.
Dr. Kenneth Kubsch, Mimi’s husband, began his medical practice in 1975 in Internal Medicine. He served his patients at the West Side Clinic and later Prevea until his retirement in 2006. He was a trusted and caring doctor, even making home visits when this practice had long since been discontinued by most others in the medical community. Ken passed away in 2009.
If you would like to make a gift donation to the Kubsch Scholarship, you can do so through the UW-Green Bay Foundation website or by calling (920) 465-2074.
