Long Term Care Nursing Scholarship
As our populace grows in our country, coupled with the aging of many, it is imperative that our medical schools educate and graduate nurses to fulfill our society’s critical need for this long term nursing care shortage. Long term care male nursing scholarships are available.
The majority of long term nursing care needed can be found from patients that are too old to physically care for themselves or with medical problems from such diseases as Diabetes or Alzheimer’s. As our baby boomers continue to age, a strain for specialized nurses will continue to grow. Stroke or accident patients can also need long term nursing care. Whether the long term care is located at the patient’s home, a nursing home or a rehabilitation center, nurses need to be trained for their specific needs.
A major way to promote an influx of more specialized nurses for the treatment of patients who need long term nursing care is through giving them access to many scholarships. Now, with the help from private and public organizations, and the Federal Government, programs have been implemented to help individuals gain access to these scholarships.
Long term care nursing scholarships from private and public organizations exists in many states. Once an individual starts looking, they will be amazed. As stated by Scholarships.com, in North Carolina, The Virginia Elizabeth and Alma Vane Taylor Student Nurse Fund offers up to a thousand dollars for nursing educational expenses, regardless of the specialty. According to the University of Iowa College of Nursing, through their Geriatric Nursing School, they have a 2.2 million dollar gift commitment to the UI Foundation for nursing scholarships.
The United States Department of Health and Human Resources has stated that the Federal Government has initiated a nursing scholarship program. This program virtually pays for all your nursing school expenses and gives a monthly stipend for the aid in living expenses. In return, the individual must work at certain health facilities for two years after graduation. There are also other restrictions.
There are many more scholarships associated with long term nursing care education. Take the time and find what is best for your circumstances.
