The Health Resources and Services Administration’s NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program (LRP) offers registered nurses and advanced practice registered nurses substantial financial assistance in exchange for full-time service either at a Critical Shortage Facility or an eligible school of nursing.
NURSE Corps LRP awards are subject to the availability of funds. This notice is a contingency action taken to ensure that, should funds become available for this purpose, applications can be processed and funds awarded in a timely manner. Applicants should note that this Guidance may be cancelled prior to award recommendations in the absence of funding.
The Suncoast Organization of Nurse Executives (SCONE) is seeking applications for book scholarships for nurses pursuing BSN or higher degrees. SCONE supports the recommendation from the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) Future of Nursing report for nurses to achieve higher levels of education and to increase the proportion of nurses with a baccalaureate degree to 80% by 2020. These recommendations are gaining momentum through the Future of Nursing Campaign for Action, which is a national initiative to implement the recommendations from the IOM.
Applicants must be pursuing BSN or higher degrees and do not need to be a member of SCONE. The application deadline is Monday, October 2, 2017. We plan to award several $200 book scholarships at the December general membership meeting.
