- 0Apr 4, '12 by Wild Irish LPNI am very excited about this scholarship....GPA 3.9, EFC 0, excellent letters of recommendations and clinical performances and volunteer hours of 20+ of tutoring....going from LPN program into ADN-RN program this September....I do not at all intend to be "sexist" with this next question at all, so here it goes....does being a male nurse give you any advantage in the selection process?....men are definately under-represented in the nursing profession so it would make sense that we may get a closer look...just wondering what your thoughts may be....Thanks!

From the Website under eligibility:
Please note: Students enrolled in Licensed Practice Nurse programs, self-paced study programs (on-line), and bridge / dual degree programs that are not RN-to-BSN programs are not eligible for a scholarship award.

I would call and clarify this. Trying to "trick" them is surely not the way to go. It looks like your program is not eligible and that is why there is no correct box for your school to check.
