While searching for nursing scholarship information for my daughter who is in get first year of her Bachelors of Nursing program at a major university, I came across this link. Helpful information and links – thanks! But these comments? Most sound totally ignorant and begging for money, many from non US citizens. Seriously? Do the hard work and apply, nobody is going to hand you a free lunch just “because.” If you want to be a nurse, find a way. Work two jobs if necessary and save money and then go to a two year college first paying your own way. Then with good grades, maybe you will get accepted into a nursing program and can apply for scholarships or loans. We need more people willing to work hard – what use to be the American way. Sadly, it’s becoming the gimme crowd of the losers.

From government sponsored programs to awards given out by historical societies, sororities and fraternities and professional nurse associations, with a bit of research and persistence the chances of receiving aid are good. But, it is important to look into other ways to finance your education, such as federal loans and grants because scholarships alone (unless you receive a full-tuition scholarship) will not be enough to finance the entire education completely.

The Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) offers grants to prospective nursing students who are open to joining the armed services upon completion of their education. All branches of the United States Military offer ROTC opportunities, including the Air Force, Navy, Army, Marines and the National Health Service Corps.
Most of the research prospective students need to do when determining which options to apply for is available for free online. It is not necessary for any prospective student to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars to so-called scholarship companies. Be especially careful not to get involved with any company that guarantees a student will absolutely receive the scholarship he or she applies for.
Upon acceptance of the grant, the recipient agrees to provide a specified number of years of service in that particular branch of the armed services. After completion of the required amount of service time, the grantee can then enter into a contract with the military to continue service as an officer or leave the armed forces to work as a nurse outside of the military service.
