FREE NURSING DEGREE AVAILABLE
If you want to get a degree and help out a hospital with a nurse shortage, here is your chance. It is made available by the HRSA Nursing Scholarship Program
Accepting Applications through May 6
The Health Resources and Services Administration's Nursing Scholarship Program is accepting applications until May 6. It pays for tuition, education-related expenses (including books, clinical supplies and laboratory fees) and even a living stipend.
Nurses must commit to work for at least two years after graduation at a health facility with a critical shortage of nurses.
Call 800/221-9393for details.
Preference will be given to qualified applicants with the greatest financial need who are enrolled full-time in an undergraduate registered nursing program.
You will have to begin classes for the fall term on or after July 1 and no later than Sept. 30 of this year.
There are about 500 awards available for the 2010-11 school year.
It's not a free lunch, but it sounds like a good deal if you want to be a nurse and are short of funds.
