The 2012 "Back to School" Nursing Scholarship Program
It’s easy to talk about the nursing shortage, and the other challenges facing the nursing profession - like the need for higher-level education among current nurses. Well, we decided we’d actually do something about it too.
In this application cycle, we’re giving away three scholarships of $2,500 each (in 2010, we awarded two). One will go to an ADN-prepared nurse who’s going back to school for an RN to BSN program. The second will go to a nurse who’s going back to school for a Masters in Nursing or Doctorate in Nursing program. The third will go to a non-nurse who’s going back to school to become a nurse (in an Accelerated Second Degree BSN or Direct Entry MSN program). The scholarships can be used for either campus-based or online programs.
The program is administered by Scholarship America (www.scholarshipamerica.org), the nation’s premier administrator of private scholarship programs.
We look forward to continuing to expand the number of scholarships as time goes on. Please help us get the word out and make this program a success by linking to this page (on your blog, or your Facebook profile, or anywhere else you see fit). We appreciate it!
Unfortunately the application deadline of April 15, 2012 has now passed. Please bookmark this page and check back in late February 2013 for information on our next round of scholarships.
