Richard Wynkoop Sr. (1948 – 2015) together
with his wife of 35 years, Jackie Taylor-Wynkoop, shared a passion for
emergency nursing. Richard had a background in EMS and was a past EMS Chief of the Levittown Fairless Hills Rescue Squad and served as a sergeant in the Vietnam War.
Richard’s support of the ENA Foundation is shown through Jackie’s enthusiasm as an advocate for the ENA Foundation and emergency nursing education. Together with their combined love for emergency nursing a permanent endowment has been established in memory of Richard Wynkoop to support emergency nurses and make a difference in the years to come.
The goal for this endowment is $25,000. Once reached, the ENA Foundation will begin to award the Richard Wynkoop Sr. educational scholarship in perpetuity.
“Nursing is becoming more complex compared to when I first worked in the ED, and emergency nurses need to further their education. If this could help someone else obtain that goal to become an ED nurse or a better one, I think it’s worth it.” - Jackie Taylor-Wynkoop
