    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if those who are accepted/enrolled in an accelerated BSN program and have a bachelor's degree in another field able to apply? Do either of these make you ineligible?

    Also, are we supposed to submit all documents online AND through regular mail or would either one suffice?

    I'm in long island, NY. From the list the only hospital on LI that is approved is Nassau University Medical Center which is fine. My nursing school is in Brooklyn and when looking in the five boroughs I'm seeing a few small not for profit clinics but that's kind of where choices run short, and when looking at employment sections on these clinics websites there aren't even available jobs.

    Cecix,

    Are you set on working at a hospital? I would definitely keep looking. We are still in the beginning of the year. Plenty of new grads could have scooped up all of the openings. Just a thought. I would think NY would have more. I wasn't able to make it to the webinar. But they did state in the slideshow that hospitals and such in approved areas would work also. When I went to the search and typed the address of a specific hospital, I received a message stating it was approved for because of the area. I am not 100% sure, but there may be some gray areas with what is "approved". Good Luck!

    Hello Everyone,

    I have 5 former transcripts and scanned all of them, however the application will only except 1 page. Has anyone else had this problem? Should I just send my current Nursing transcript? Any advice or information would be much appreciated! Thank you!

    Hihopes, I think for the most part people think hospital and think security which isn't always the case. I'm willing to work anywhere for experience, especially when im a new grad. And I definitely did see a lot less jobs posted than a month ago so I'm assuming people are getting hired. I'm trying to find a way to search for sites but no luck. Can you post a link to the site you were on?! That would be awesome!

    If you scan your documents as a PDF you should be able to easily combine them into a single file, then upload them to the online application.

    Cecix,

    Here is the link I used for the shortage area info. It lets you put an address and gives you shortage info HRSA - Find Shortage Areas: HPSA & MUA/P by Address - Version 2.0 HRSA - Find Shortage Areas: HPSA & MUA/P by Address - Version 2.0
    Hope this helps.

    Can anybody tell me if the scholarship committee would contact the applicant's recommenders? I just wanna make sure I inform my professors in case they get contacted by the HRSA.

    If you log into fafsa, you should be able to download a copy of your SAR. Good thing it's already available on pdf file so you can upload it directly onto the portal. I hope that helps

    Accelerated BSN students are eligible. I called before the cycle began to be sure.

    Hi all! Im new to applying to hrsa this year and let me tell you i am very excited! I hope to have all of my documents uploaded and submitted by wednesday May 2nd. I know the essays had a 2500 word limit, but it also said about half a page? I was curious as to how long some of yours were? Next semster fall 2012 i will be a graduating senior. Do you guys think that will affect whether or not i get the scholarship? I just found out recently that i have reached my limit on federal loans and grant aid Without this scholarship im going to need a miracle to graduate in Dec 2012. I really hope i get it. I will sure be praying for it!
