In celebration of National Nurses Week (May 6-12), ECPI University will award more than $55,000 in scholarships across its 14 nursing campuses in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Texas and online.
The contest is open to aspiring nurses, current ECPI nursing students and nurses working in their field and looking to earn an advanced degree. To enter, applicants must answer “How is Nursing a Work of Heart?”, submit a photo to be used for Facebook voting and select which campus and degree program they plan to attend.
Entries will be accepted now through Saturday. Each scholarship is worth $2,000, and each campus will have two scholarship recipients. Winners will be announced May 12 during a special “thank you” event for ECPI nursing students, faculty and graduates.
