Another great find - The National Health Service Corps

The National Health Service Corps
I had not heard of this until today. I am reposting this site information because of a Facebook posting by the UConn Office of National Scholarships on Facebook.

Here is that link:

Here is a short quote from the FB posting:
"DUE 5/8/12: National Health Service Corps Scholarship Apps:
• The NHSC Scholarship Program removes the burden of overwhelming educational debt and allows program participants the ability to pursue a passion for primary care and serving the underserved.
• For each year of financial support (up to four years) a Scholarship recipient serves one year (minimum two years) in an NHSC-approved site in hi
gh-need urban, rural, and frontier communities across the nation.
• Scholarship support includes tax-free payment of tuition, required fees, other reasonable educational costs, and a monthly living stipend (taxable).
• All students applying to the program must be a U.S. citizen or national and enrolled or accepted in an eligible degree program at a U.S. accredited school in Medicine: MD or DO; Dentistry: DMD or DDS; Nurse Practitioner (Adult, Family, Geriatrics, Pediatrics, Psychiatric, or Women’s health); Certified Nurse Midwife; and Physician Assistant."
I just sent this information to someone else who is thinking of a nursing career, and also sharing it on the Nontraditional Students Facebook page too. This is a great opportunity and reminds me of the TeachAmerica and AmericCorps.
