A nice surprise during my Nursing Orientation!

Today we had nursing orientation for all the students in the program, first and second years. I'm in the second of the two year nursing program. At the end of the the summer PN session the Dean of the program announced that two scholarships were available and that we were encouraged all to apply. Normally I forget to get any scholarships turned in before the deadline like many other students in my class. This time I applied for both scholarships before the deadline. At the nursing orientation they awarded these scholarships. The gave out the first after discussing how it came about and my name was called. I couldn't believe my ears. I remember going up there and shaking the persons hand. Then I quickly went to my seat. I just sat there staring at the award sheet. Then they talked about the next scholarship to be given out and I was about floored when they called my name out again. I went up and shook another hand. I was in shock and tried to escape again. They caught me and made me stay where I was to get my picture taken. Then they allowed me to escape. I was speechless and amazed that I was awarded the only two scholarships they were giving out that day. It was a very good feeling if you couldn't tell already. Main reason I was trying to escape was since I was shocked and numb I knew I had to sit down. This was so unexpecting!

What did you have to do on your app? How did they decide to award them (gpa, need, achievements)? Will this take care of the rest of your education costs??

The Dean told us about the scholarships at the end of the summer PN course and encouraged all to apply. There some restrictions for one of them like financial need, 25 years old and overcoming personal difficulties that can impede progress in achieving in the nursing goal. The other was to live in the town of the school and a non-smoker. So these were the main guidelines I had to fit to obtain either one of the two.

This should take care of the rest of my education costs. Copy%20of%20wink.gif
