Omaha, Nebraska (PRWEB) May 07, 2015
Medical Solutions, the nation’s third-largest travel nurse staffing company, kicks off its fourth annual Nurses of Tomorrow Scholarship Contest May 6, 2015.
In honor of Nurses Week, May 6-12, this contest will award three lucky undergraduate or postgraduate nurse scholars each with a $2000 scholarship. This year’s awards are larger than in prior years, thanks to additional sponsorship by Medical Solutions’ RN to BSN Academy partner Nebraska Methodist College.
Applicants will be judged on several criteria including academic standing and a 250-word essay answering the question: “What does being a patient advocate mean to you?”
“We offer the Nurses of Tomorrow scholarship as a way to contribute to the creation of strong nurses, nurse leaders and educators who will provide quality patient care and leadership in the future,” says Amber Barna, RN, BSN, Medical Solutions’ Clinical Director of Nursing. “Nurse education and development is a very important component of combatting the nursing shortage.”
The scholarship competition runs from May 6 (midnight CST) through June 6 (11:59 p.m. CST), 2015.
