Here at the Advising Blog we have important information to share with our Nursing and Prospective Nursing students. The Nursing Scholarship Program (NSP) application cycle has officially opened today and will close on May 8, 2012.
What is NSP you ask? The Nursing Scholarship Program is designed to aid nursing students in their academic program. The NSP provides scholarships to nursing students in exchange for a minimum 2 year full-time service commitment (or part-time equivalent) at an eligible health care facility located in a primary care or mental Health Professional Shortage Area also known as a Critical Shortage Facility. While in school, NSP participants receive tuition and fees, an annual payment for other reasonable costs to cover expenses for books, clinical supplies, and instruments, and a monthly stipend to cover living expenses.
The deadline to apply to the NSP is May 8,2012, at 5:00pm ET. To learn more about the NSP eligibility and requirements, visit http://www.hrsa.gov/loanscholarships/scholarships/Nursing/guidance.pdf
Don’t wait, this is a great opportunity for your future success.
