Scholarships can help you offset nursing education costs – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889
As costs for a nursing education have continued to rise, future nurses and those seeking advanced degrees are looking for creative ways to finance their schooling.
Scholarships aren’t always based primarily on grade-point averages. Some schools look more at a student’s circumstances and how it’s monetary investment could impact an applicant’s life.
For example, Independence University’s online nursing program offers the “Your Future” scholarship, which provides scholarships starting at $3,000.
Alan Hansen, PhD, vice president of online and the executive director for Independence University in Salt Lake City, said, “We’re looking more at your letters of recommendation and how the education will change your life.”
The university also offers half-price tuition for an advanced degree if a qualifying nurse completes a BSN from Independence. That reduction would cut the cost for a master’s degree from just more than $29,000 to $14,500, Hansen said.
