The Nursing Scholars Program fosters opportunity and success for outstanding high school junior and senior students who show interest and ability in NRCC’s Nursing Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Degree. There are two levels of scholarships to be awarded, level one and level two. Nursing Scholars receive support from advisors charged with helping Scholars make the best possible transition from high school through the completion of NRCC’s Nursing AAS Degree.
Up to five Nursing Scholars in NRCC’s region receive a level one scholarship that provides in-state tuition, college fees, and textbooks for the five Nursing AAS Degree program prerequisite courses completed by high school graduation.
