Are you an aspiring nurse who's interested in caring for America's Veterans?

If so, the Department of Veterans Affairs invites you to apply for our Health Professionals Scholarship Program.  Through the Health Professionals Scholarship Program, we are offering educational assistance in the form of tuition, fees, and a monthly living stipend, to students pursuing a degree and/or certificate in Nursing (CNA, LPN, RN).

As a VA nurse, you’ll be responsible for ensuring that our patients receive the best treatment possible, from the bedside to case management. The work is challenging, as Veterans often require complex care. But ultimately, you’ll feel the unmatched fulfillment that comes with improving the lives of people who’ve proudly served our nation.
