In the U.S., we are projected to experience a shortage of nurses that will only be compounded by the aging Baby Boomer generation. Such a deficiency would negatively impact our society at large, but would most acutely be felt by already vulnerable populations. In order to help alleviate its effects, it’s more important than ever to encourage individuals to pursue careers in nursing and fill these job vacancies.
However, skyrocketing tuition costs deter individuals from pursuing this lucrative field – as well as contribute to the racial disparity in higher education. In an effort to make the nursing field more accessible and equitable, my team at Nursing.org researched a pair of financial aid guides for current and prospective nurses. One is specifically geared towards students of minority backgrounds and includes scholarship opportunities for groups under this umbrella:
