The Board of Trustees of the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) of Somerset Hills is now accepting applicants for its 2017 Nursing Scholarships. A $1000 scholarship will be awarded to two qualified Morris or Somerset County students planning to pursue a baccalaureate degree in nursing (BSN). Each year since 1991, the VNA has awarded college scholarships to students from Morris or Somerset County planning to enter the nursing profession. The scholarships are financed by proceeds from the VNA’s bi-annual Rummage Sale and other fundraising efforts.
“We encourage all members of the community considering the nursing profession to apply, including graduating high school students and those adults entering the health care field during a career change. As a community-focused organization, the VNA is pleased to support the education of men and women considering a rewarding future dedicated to caring and making a difference in the lives of others,” said Daniel Powell, VNA of Somerset Hills President & CEO.
