Has anyone gone with HRSA??


Hi everyone,

I'm looking into applying to nursing schools and i'm interested in NYU. I would love to go, but it's expensive. I was wondering if anyone has gone through HRSA to fund their nursing education and if so, what have your experiences been with HRSA? Any advice or feedback would be wonderful.

Thank you!!!!!

The HRSA has given me $1500 every semester since my second semester of freshman year (back when I was a "pre-nursing" major). I'm having a hell of a time finding a job in my state but I know they're out there and I have 6 months after graduation to find a job in my state in a "needed" area, which is pretty much everything!

I read that HRSA will pay for your entire education if you work with them for a minimum of 2 years. Do you know what kind of areas they put you in? I live in ny.

I am applying for this grant. I was told that just about any place you want to go you just have to make sure they are a critical shortage area. Almost everywhere is that, these days. :yeah:

Be careful not to assume that you will receive this grant/contract. I have known many, many people who have applied and very few who have received it. I hope someone else can speak to this better, but my understanding was you pretty much had to be destitute for consideration and unless your EFC (FAFSA score) was a big fat 0, you weren't even considered?
