Now let’s look at what Nursing Scholarship opportunities are available!

Nurses are an integral component of our healthcare system. Nursing programs come in a variety of formats, with 1- and 2-year associate degree programs available as well as 4-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree programs. These 4-year programs prepare graduates to become Registered Nurses (RN).

In RN degree programs, you’ll study liberal arts and humanities electives in your first two years. Along with these courses, you’ll be expected to enroll in natural science and nursing theory courses. In the third and fourth years of the program, you’ll take more intensive nursing courses such as anatomy and physiology, microbiology, pharmacology and nutrition. Many programs feature an internship as a degree requirement. With a nursing internship, you’ll receive course credit while working in an actual healthcare setting.
