Davin Healthcare Nursing Scholarship and Davin Healthcare Nursing and Allied Health Scholarship
The Davin Healthcare Scholarship and Davin Healthcare Nursing and Allied Health Scholarship were established to support students pursuing a career in nursing or allied health professions.

Dr. Bridget Nettleton Memorial Healthcare Scholarship
The scholarship was established by alumni David and Susan Theobald in tribute to Dr. Nettleton’s impact on themselves, their company Davin Healthcare, and the greater field of Nursing. David Theobald stated, “My wife, Susan, and I are delighted to contribute to the establishment of a scholarship in memory of Dr. Bridget Nettleton. These scholarships aim to support students pursuing advanced degrees in nursing and allied health sciences through SUNY Empire State University programs. Dr. Nettleton played a pivotal role as my mentor, guiding me from the inception of my academic journey in obtaining my BSN in ‘13 to my MSN in ’17 during her tenure as the dean of the School of Nursing and Allied Health. She was not only a mentor to me but also a beacon of light for many others, offering guidance with kindness and compassion throughout their educational and professional endeavors. We believe that investing in the education and development of aspiring healthcare professionals is crucial for the betterment of our communities and the advancement of the healthcare industry. Dr. Nettleton’s dedication to nurturing talent and fostering excellence in the field serves as a shining example for us all. Through these scholarships, we honor her memory by empowering students to follow their dreams and make a positive impact in the world of nursing and allied health sciences.”

Founded in 2000 by CEO David Theobald ’13, ’17, RN, BSN and his wife Susan Theobald ’16, Davin Healthcare had inspired beginnings. After suffering from a near-fatal motorcycle accident, David Theobald was impressed with the nurses that cared for him, ones that ultimately helped save his life. Inspired to take action, Theobald enrolled in nursing school himself, and Davin Healthcare (originally founded as Stat Staff Professionals) was born soon after.


David Theobald received his Bachelor of Science in Nursing from SUNY Empire State University in 2013 and promptly enrolled among the first group of students in the college’s brand-new Masters in Nursing program. As both a nurse and an alumnus, Theobald understands first-hand the importance of education for the nurse, as well as the quality education provided by Empire State University. Susan Theobald received her MBA degree with a graduate certificate in Human Resource Management in 2016.
