Nursing Scholarships Offered by Western Governors University for Master's Degree Programs
Date:10/17/2007

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Western Governors University (http://www.wgu.edu) is now offering its Future of Nursing Scholarships to prospective nurse leaders, nurse managers and nurse educators. These scholarships are designed to help working nurses earn a master's degree online to become educators, managers, and leaders in various healthcare settings. The scholarships are available for M.S. in Nursing-Education and M.S. in Nursing-Leadership and Management degree programs.

These online nursing degrees are designed for licensed RNs who hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and whose licenses are unencumbered (no suspensions, revocations or investigations). Western Governors University is working to fill these high-need areas in the growing healthcare field. Getting a degree through WGU's online, competency-based academic model provides the flexibility and convenience for working nurses who need to obtain a master's degree while continuing to practice.

Each scholarship is valued up to $5,000. The scholarship will be credited to the recipient's account at the rate of $1,000 per six-month term for up to five terms. Tuition for a six-month term is $3,250, less the $1,000 per term scholarship.

The scholarship awards are based on a reasonable experience of five six-month terms to complete a program. Most students can complete their master's degree in about two years, but may complete their degree sooner depending on the incoming student's prior experience, academic background, and commitment to study.

WGU is a non-profit, regionally accredited institution and is the only online competency-based university. The university is fully accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities and the Distance Education and Training Council. Nursing programs are based on the American Association of Colleges of Nursing Essentials.

Scholarships are awarded based upon a candidate's academic record, readiness for online study, financial need, and current competency, plus other considerations. For detailed information about eligibility requirements and application, go to: http://www.wgu.edu/msnscholarship or call toll-free 1-866-225-5948, extension 1693.
