As I read through various university websites for nursing programs
(I'm looking at graduate-entry programs and some of the specialized MA degrees), I'm really surprised to see that there aren't many scholarships
offered by schools
. Am I missing something? Do schools ever offer full- or half-tuition waivers or scholarships, or is everyone pretty much borrowing their way through?
It seems like in a field with such a critical shortage, there would be more institutional support. For instance, law schools routinely offer large scholarships to students -- especially private schools. Obviously, it's hard to get a full ride, but many of the private law schools routinely offer 1/2 scholarship
tuition waivers to students.
Is this not the case in nursing? MPH programs also have a lot of scholarship support for students.
Any thoughts? I'm really surprised!! With the escalating costs of tuition, this seems to make the barriers to entry so much higher!
