Healthcare Scholarship: Nurse of Tomorrow
As you progress through your nursing classes, you may already have learned that money is in short supply for students. Tuition and books are expensive. Commuting to school, required fees, and your room and board only add to your annual educational commitment. Different foundations understand this. Medical Solutions LLC works to provide some money every academic year to deserving nursing students who meet the eligibility requirements.
The Nurses of Tomorrow scholarship was designed to provide you and other nursing students with the financial support you need. It is a one-time-only award. If you receive this scholarship, you should understand that it does not come with any promise of a renewal for a future scholarship. The intent of this scholarship is to help you, as a future nurse, develop, not only your nursing knowledge, but your skills. In addition, the scholarship is meant to develop your leadership abilities and increase the supply of educated, qualified nurses and reverse nursing’s current shortage.
