Loyola University New Orleans Announces Final Week to Apply for Nursing Scholarship Program
The Loyola University New Orleans scholarship awards program, commemorating the school´s 33-year history of providing top-notch education for nurses in America, is open for prospective students to apply with a fast approaching deadline of March 23, 2012.
New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) March 19, 2012
The Loyola University New Orleans Nursing Scholarship Program is open for application until March 23rd. It offers students access to a higher education that prepares them for work in a healthcare marketplace where patients needing regular care are many and nurse leaders are few. Five new students entering the online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program, who apply by the deadline, will be selected to receive the $4,500 scholarship.
Registered nurses seeking a nursing master´s degree can still apply for the scholarship by visiting http://scholarship.loyolaneworleansonline.com/msn. By completing the school´s highly honored, adult distance learning degree program, nurses can be prepared for advanced career options in their field. The scholarship and the online MSN program are both cost-effective means for nurses to benefit from convenient online study and to meet personal and career goals.
“We believe every nurse is a leader, and our online Master of Science in Nursing program provides a solution at a top ranked graduate program,” says Ann H. Cary, PhD MPH RN, Professor and Director of the School of Nursing at Loyola. “Flexibility is key in today´s fast-moving healthcare marketplace, and the distinguished online faculty at Loyola University New Orleans brings a wealth of experience from multiple venues of the healthcare industry to help students generate maximum career returns for their investment in education.”
Prospective students must apply for the scholarship by March 23, 2012 to be eligible. To do so, students must submit an essay to Loyola University New Orleans Online, which explains what nursing means to them and how their career would benefit with a Master of Science in Nursing with a Healthcare Systems Management Specialization. School faculty and staff will then select the five winners after reviewing the submissions; recipients will receive a $4,500 credit to their tuition costs through the duration of Loyola´s two-year program.
The winners of the scholarship will be announced before the summer, 2012 semester. Scholarship and admissions applications remain open at http://scholarship.loyolaneworleansonline.com/msn until March 23. The final week to apply for the scholarship begins Friday, March 16.
