    I know it's been a while since anyone's posted on here but I just did some more research on this scholarship after the admissions adviser to my accelerated bsn program mentioned it to me last summer. I was just accepted into the program and will be starting in May.

    As for the scholarship, does anyone have an idea of how competitive it is? Do you think they would award it to someone who is pursuing nursing as a second degree?

    Thanks for any information you might have!! Good luck everyone =)

    Hey

    I definitely believe they do award to individuals pursuing nursing as a second degree or career change. You are eligible as long as your are accepted/enrolled in an accredited nursing program (including accelerated BSN). I just got into an entry level masters program for nursing and completed my undergrad in another non nursing degree. If you go to the HRSA website they have all the information regarding the scholarship for the 2012 cycle. The 2013 application should be available sometime in March. Good luck to you and congrats on getting into your program!

    Well I finished my application tonight for the HRSA, I sure hope this goes well in my direction. I have three children two of which are in college now and I Need to assist them with college and having a large student loan hinders the ablitiy of helping them get their lifes started in the educational fields. Also, I have a precious 1yr old grand-daughter I would love to start saving for her education as well. Nursing has been a great blessing to me. I dearly love being a nurse practitioner and helping patients out. To see my patients return to my office with good news that their sugars are down or their BP is better or they lost weight all from the education they received from me at their previous appt. Nursing is a great rewarding career. I wish everyone luck and remember to say a Prayer. We all need it.

    Can you guys help me figure out how this is supposed to work?
    1. The NURSECorps scholarship application deadline is May 2 and requires we already be accepted into the program.
    2. The ADN program I am applying to has an application deadline of May 31 and requires applicants to already have their CNA.
    3. The Spring semester CNA class ends mid-May. The state CNA test isn't available until mid-June.
    I can't wait another entire year to start school. How can I make this work?

    I am applying also, and badly need it. I quit my job to go to school fulltime. Raising a 5-year-old son with $800/ month. I am in the first semester of the ADN program. I really hope to get it for the next school year. The date line is 5/2. Should I submit my application early? If after I graduate from the ADN, and go to a RN-BSN program, can I keep renew my contract and get one more year of scholarship?
    Please share your experience and advice, I really appreciate everything

    It sounds like you don't have a choice but to wait another year Can you work on prereqs? Are you going to get your BSN someday? There are more prereqs for that that you could work on...

    Hey folks, also applying to HRSA Nursing Scholarship program this year.

    My EFC falls within the 0-5500 range, but I'm unsure if it's even possible to get it because they never leave the EFC 0 range? If that's correct does that mean they just choose the applicants who are EFC 0, then EFC 1, then EFC 2, etc? Or do they choose within that 0-5500 spectrum? /so confused.
