The Nurses of Tomorrow Scholarship offers three $2000 scholarships and is funded by Medical Solutions and Nebraska Methodist College and its Traveling Nurses in honor of Nurses Week. It is intended to provide scholarship support for nursing students with demonstrated financial need and to help develop the world’s next generation of nurse leaders and educators. The scholarship was endowed for nursing to help those students in need of financial assistance and to combat the growing nursing shortage.
To be eligible applicants must meet the following criteria:
