So I've just been selected for one of the Nursing Scholarship Program awards and after all the excitement has worn down I'm left wondering what exactly I've gotten myself in to. The service contract requires 2 years of employment in a facility with a critical shortage of nurses, but the HRSA website doesn't have any kind of list of eligible facilities. It sounds like so many new nurses are having a hard time finding employment, so where exactly are these critically understaffed facilities?

Do any of you have tips on locating these places? :confused:

Nursing Scholarship Program - Site Eligibility

There are several facility types listed with links for more information.

Another link from the HRSA website:

Find Shortage Areas: MUA/P by State and County

Took less than 5 minutes to find.

Thank you for responding. I guess I should have been more specific. I'm looking for actual facilities with names and addresses rather than vague institution types.

The links provided for you list the types of facilities.

I'd suggest using the second link to identify the type of facilities allowed in the area you want to work then looking them up in the phone book.

No one can give you "actual names" because they potentially number in the millions and are specific for each State/County.

You're going to have to do the research on your own.
