I am currently a freshman in college and my major is nursing. As a nursing major, students work hard to focus, study and maintain good grades to be the nurse they want to be. This scholarship will help me with my college tuition.

Since I've always dreamed of becoming a nurse I feel like this scholarship is the next perfect step into healthcare.
