Why Do You Need This Book?
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that nearly 500,000 new nurses will be needed by the year 2020. Hundreds of financial aid programs, representing billions of dollars, are available to help students prepare for these jobs. But, how can beginning or continuing nursing students find out about the full range of these funding opportunities?
In the past, coverage of these programs has been selective and incomplete. Now, with this new edition of How to Pay for Your Degree in Nursing (formerly published under the title RSP Funding for Nursing Students and Nurses), that has all changed. Here, in one place, you can find totally up-to-date information on the 800+ biggest and best funding programs set aside specifically to support study, research, creative projects, and other degree-related activities by nursing students at any level, from associate degree and diploma through the doctorate.
What Kind of Information is Provided?
All areas of nursing are covered, ranging from general practice to administration, anesthesiology, critical care, emergency, holistic health, long-term care, midwifery, nephrology, occupational health, oncology, operating room, orthopedic, pediatric, psychiatric, rehabilitative, school health, and many others.
Each program description is prepared from current material supplied by the sponsoring organization. In seconds, you can read about the purpose, eligibility, monetary award, duration, special features, limitations, number awarded, and deadline date for any program that interests you. Plus, the book is organized so you can search for aid by purpose (study/training or research/creative activities), program title, sponsor, residency, tenability, nursing specialty, and even deadline date.
How to Pay for Your Degree in Nursing is one of several titles issued by Reference Service Press that identify funding opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students in specific subject fields. Other titles cover:
