NNPS Scholarship Winners for the 2016-17 Academic Year
Nurturing the Nursing Profession Scholarships, NNPS, is a 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization. It was founded to promote the field of nursing through the awarding of scholarships to deserving individuals in financial need and who desire to enter the field of nursing or to nurses who wish to advance their nursing education. Individuals who wish to apply for a scholarship should complete the application located on the NNPS website and submit it as directed for consideration by the NNPS Board of Directors. Scholarships are awarded in the spring.
Secondarily, NNPS will educate the public about the role nurses play in ensuring a safe health care environment. NNPS will hold/sponsor events and promotions that raise money for the scholarships, and increase public awareness of the nursing profession’s contributions to health care.
