Nursing School Student Loans

The United States is currently experiencing a critical shortage of qualified nursing professionals at both the regional and national levels. This has led to an increase in the availability of financial aid programs designed to specifically benefit nursing students at every level of their education. While grants and scholarships can provide some assistance, education loans remain the backbone of every student’s college fund.

In many ways nursing students have an advantage when it comes to securing low interest student loans. The high demand for qualified nurses has produced a wide range of low cost loans designed to address the educational needs and career goals of students entering the healthcare profession. These loans typically have low interest rates, and offer flexible repayment plans that often include loan deferment options that give nursing students the time they need to secure a permanent position in a hospital, doctor’s office or primary care facility. Moreover, many state governments offer loan forgiveness programs that provide repayment opportunities for licensed nursing professionals who agree to take positions in designated critical need facilities or communities.

College Board Opportunity Scholarships

A $25 million commitment to encourage more students to take the steps necessary to get into college. This first-of-its-kind national scholarship program lays out six simple steps that all students can take to get into college. Students have the chance to earn scholarships when they:

Build their college list.

Practice for the SAT®.

Improve their SAT score.

Strengthen their college list.

Fill out the FAFSA.

Apply to college.

We hear from students and families across the country that getting into college is an overwhelming and complicated process. They're hungry for a simple guide that tells them what to do and when to do it. The six steps highlighted by College Board Opportunity Scholarships help students plan by making a good starter list of schools, prepare so they can take their best shot at getting in, and pay for college by earning scholarships and applying for financial aid.

Beginning with the class of 2020, we'll be awarding scholarships ranging from $500 to $40,000.

This isn’t your typical scholarship program. It doesn’t require an essay or an application, and it doesn’t have a minimum GPA or SAT score requirement. The College Board Opportunity Scholarships are different. The program is open to all students who attend high school in the United States, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories.
The College Board Opportunity Scholarships were designed to save counselors time by providing a simple guide to all kids. By taking each step, students can show college admission officers their resourcefulness and grit beyond test scores alone, while being rewarded along the way.

Our message today to all students, not just those at the front of the class, is that they can be a scholar and that they can go to college. We're asking all students to step up no matter where they stand, no matter where they’ve been.

Students can begin today by signing up on our site. The first step is to make a starter list of six colleges they want to attend. Just by making that list, they earn a chance for a $500 scholarship.

I hope you’ll share this email with friends and colleagues—we are eager to reach as many students as we can. Visit the College Board Opportunity Scholarships website for detailed information and additional resources.
