Posted over 1 year ago by Grace Grau in SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

NAHN Scholarships are awarded annually to active NAHN members enrolled in accredited LVN/LPN, associate, diploma, baccalaureate, and graduate nursing programs. Scholarship recipients are a select group of nursing students who demonstrate promise of professional contributions to the nursing profession and who have the potential to act as role models for other aspiring nursing students.

The number of scholarships offered each year is dependent upon the amount of money in the scholarship fund. Members are encouraged to donate to support future scholarships.
