There were a few scholarships available for students that were essay-based or for minorities in nursing. I wrote an essay and was awarded some money towards school... it wasn't a whole lot, but basically paid for half a semester, so any little bit helps.
I really enjoy the program a lot. I think the BEST thing about it, by far, is the professors. They absolutely, without any exception, want you do succeed and do anything to make sure you do. I know this was something I read as a criticism for other schools, so I feel so fortunate that the staff are so great. We have also gotten guest speakers and have fun projects.
It's tough, but overall, I am really happy I chose GWU
Mindyland, I'm hoping you can answer a few questions about the program and the Ashburn, VA area. What is the NCLEX pass rate? What is the cost of living? If I choose to attend, I'll be relocating from NY. Would you say it's easy to meet other young professionals in the area?
