Scholarships for Nursing Majors
It takes a special kind of person to be a nurse; someone with fortitude, compassion, and dedication. Chances are if you’ve always dreamt of becoming a nurse, these qualities describe you, and if you are looking for nursing scholarships to help offset the costs of your education, there are several organizations that want to help.
Johnson & Johnson (yes, the Band-Aid® people) is one such organization dedicated to growing the nursing profession. The company administers a website devoted solely to nursing scholarships and funding opportunities for every stage of education, from CNA to PhD.
There are also scholarships reserved solely for men in the nursing field. The American Association for Men in Nursing (AAMN) for example, issues awards aimed at promoting the presence of men in a typically female dominated profession.
Are you currently enrolled in a nursing program and borrowing money to help cover your education costs? There are also organizations that assist with tuition reimbursement and loan repayment.
If you have your heart set on nursing, you have a lot of support in your corner to help your dream come true.
The government is another way to fund your degree with scholarships like these:
- Health Professions Scholarship Program from the U.S. Army
- Nurse Candidate Program from the U.S. Navy
- NURSE Corps Scholarship Program from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)
And there are plenty more nursing scholarships to apply for here!
