Sacred Heart University Waives Application Fees for Online Nursing Programs to Honor National Nurses Week

Fairfield, CT (PRWEB) May 01, 2013

In celebration of the hard work and exceptional dedication of nurses everywhere, Sacred Heart University is honoring National Nurses Week by waiving the application fees to the University’s online nursing programs. During the week of May 6 -12, 2013, nurses can apply to the highly respected online RN-BSN, MSN and fast-track RN-BSN-MSN for free – a $50 savings.

The tradition of recognizing nurses dates back to 1954, the 100-year anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s mission to Crimea. In 1982, the American Nursing Association (ANA) formally set May 6th as “National Nurses Day.” A month later, President Ronald Regan officially signed “National Recognition Day for Nurses” into being. In 1990, the ANA established National Nurses Week as beginning each year on May 6th and ending on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.

As health care becomes more collaborative, complex and technological, nursing associations are encouraging nurses to further their level of education to keep up with the challenges of the profession as well as to continue to improve and perfect nursing care. Building on more than 30 years of excellence in nursing education, Sacred Heart University hopes to encourage more nurses to “Celebrate the Possibilities” through its online programs.

The limited-time application fee waiver is valid for applications submitted only from May 6 through May 12, 2013, and for individuals who are USA residents. Go to or call 877-791-7181 for more details today.

This application fee offer is valid from May 6 – May 12, 2013 for online nursing programs only. A value of $50 dollars per applicant. This waiver is valid for USA residents only. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and not a current student. This fee waiver has no cash value unless applied to the application fee.
