To be eligible, students must have completed at least one year of undergraduate or graduate study by the Spring of 2013 at an accredited two or four year college, university or vocational/technical school.
“I chose to pursue a career in the healthcare industry (and particularly nursing) because it provides me with nearly limitless opportunities to learn and grow while contributing to the health and well-being of others,” said Johns Hopkins University student, Jocelyn A.
“Serving patients is the reason I want to spend a lifetime in healthcare,” declared Kelsey M., of Des Moines University-Osteopathic.
