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!
