The Buena Vista Regional Medical Center Nursing Scholarship Committee is accepting scholarship applications until March 31 for the 2023-2024 academic year. The annual scholarship award is $1,000.
Since its inception in 2003, 172 scholarships have been awarded to area nursing students provided entirely by donations to the scholarship program.
Applicants must be:
- Permanent residence of Buena Vista County or adjoining county.
- Completed at least one year of pre-nursing education at an accredited school and has applied or will be applying to a nursing program for the upcoming academic year.
- Cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.
Nurses working toward an advanced degree are also eligible to apply.
“I have been a registered nurse at BVRMC for three years and am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in nursing science at Briar Cliff University. This scholarship lessens the financial burden that comes with pursing a higher education,” says past scholarship recipient, Kaylynn Smit. “Because of scholarship donors, I can continue my education which will help me provide better care to the patients I serve daily.
