Being a recipient of a scholarship only makes me want to do my very best … I am fully committed to giving it the honor it deserves by succeeding at Loyola.
New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
Celebrating 100 years of university success and 33 years of leadership in nurse education, Loyola University New Orleans recently announced Judy Servido of Tampa, Florida as a $4,500 scholarship recipient for its online Master of Science in Nursing degree program. Servido is one of five scholarship recipients enrolling in the online Master of Science in Nursing degree program that began Jan. 7, 2013, and one of 15 total recipients of the award since it began in April 2012.
“When I was encouraged to apply (for the scholarship), I had no expectation of winning one of these coveted awards,” wrote Judy Servido, R.N., when notified of her selection as a scholarship recipient. “Being a recipient of a scholarship only makes me want to do my very best … I am fully committed to giving it the honor it deserves by succeeding at Loyola.”
Candidates applying for the scholarship were asked to submit an essay of 200 to 300 words or less, explain what nursing meant to them, and how an MSN with a specialization in Health Care Systems Management would benefit or help further their career goals. The School of Nursing will continue offering the $4,500 to new students enrolling in the summer term beginning May 13, 2013. All submissions along with completed applications must be received by April 1, 2013.
Registered nurses who are ready to explore the advanced career options made possible with a nursing master’s degree can apply for the next round of scholarships to attend Loyola’s highly honored, online MSN program by visiting scholarship.elearning.loyno.edu/msn.
