Scholarships available through Mountain States to help with nursing school

Are you working toward a career in nursing? If so, you may be eligible for scholarship assistance.

Mountain States is offering scholarships – $2,500 for four years and $1,500 for two years of school – to help hire and keep more registered nurses. Students applying for these scholarships must agree to accept full-time employment at Mountain States within the first month following graduation and stay with Mountain States for at least three years.

Anyone who has been accepted into an accredited program is eligible to apply for assistance, which includes tuition, standard fees and books. The offer is good for Mountain States team members and others.

“There’s a high demand for nurses,” said Donna Ricker, senior nurse recruiter with Mountain States HR. “Basically this is an opportunity for Mountain States to help pay for your school, and give you a great place to start your career.”

Students who have been accepted into an accredited program are eligible to apply for scholarship assistance, which includes books, tuition and standard fees (less any other scholarship or grants awarded to applicant). Students may also be eligible to receive a stipend per semester to cover the cost of books and any additional expenses.

“We hope this will make a nursing career something that’s within reach for more people,” Ricker said.

The applicant must submit to Mountain States HR a completed application plus:

     1, Two (2) letters of recommendation

     2, Copy of most recent transcripts, and verification of acceptance into accredited program

     3, Tuition bill

     4, Schedule for upcoming semester
