Nursing Scholarships

Nurses are in high demand and practical students are getting the hint. Attending college for nursing can pay off big time: According to government records, registered nursing is projected to be the second most popular new profession for students across the nation (as well as for those who bring their experience from abroad). And things are only getting better: Nursing employment is expected to increase at above-average rates until 2014 as the median age of nurses increases. It’s not surprising that you can’t go wrong with a job where scrubs and gym shoes are the norm...just ask those studying medicine!

Luckily for students interested in nursing, many organizations have created nursing scholarship opportunities aimed at helping students earn their degrees. There are hospitals that cover portions of employee tuition and organizations like the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration that award scholarships and grants galore and federal student financial aid programs aimed at assisting future nurses in completing their education. There is no shortage of financial aid available to nursing students. Just seek and you shall find. Conduct a free college scholarship search to find more nursing scholarships like those listed below to help you pay for school.

Remember, you may qualify for other scholarships that have nothing to do with your major but below are just a few of the nursing scholarships you can find in the Scholarships.com database when you conduct a free, college scholarship search!
