The demand for educated nurses has been on the rise since the early 2000s. The need for skilled nurses will only continue to increase as large numbers of professionals start reaching retirement age. Graduates can enter the healthcare field with an associate degree in nursing, but those holding a bachelor’s degree will have greater job prospects, as today’s nurses need more training to care for ill patients and work with sophisticated new technology. The number of nurses holding at least a bachelor’s degree has risen about 5% in recent years, and many nurses pursue additional education after entering the RN workforce. There are a variety of nursing scholarships available to help professionals pay for the education they need in order to land the best jobs and advance their careers. 40 Scholarships for Nursing Students
