Medical Solutions, one of the nation’s largest travel nurse staffing companies, kicked off its fifth annual Nurses of Tomorrow Scholarship Contest on May 6, 2016.
In honor of Nurses Week, May 6-12, this scholarship contest will award three talented nurse scholars each with a $2,000 scholarship to put towards their educational costs.
Applicants will be judged on several criteria including academic standing and a 250-word essay answering the question: “How do you feel that being a Nurse will change your perspective on life?”
“In the face of a nationwide nurse shortage, nurse education and development is crucial to the delivery of quality healthcare, safe staffing levels, positive patient experiences, and favorable health outcomes,” says Amber Barna, RN, BSN, and Medical Solutions’ Clinical Director of Nursing. “Medical Solutions sponsors the Nurses of Tomorrow Scholarship Contest as a way to support the advancement of aspiring nurses and nursing leaders who will go on to strengthen the healthcare field.”
Medical Solutions’ Nurses of Tomorrow Scholarship Contest runs from through June 1 (11:59 p.m. CST), 2016.
