A nationwide nursing shortage has and will continue to cause devastating impacts in our healthcare system. The need is great, and the call to care has never been louder. In an unprecedented campaign to recruit students who already hold bachelor’s degrees in non-nursing fields, William Carey University is doing its part to fill the need for nurses by launching a new scholarship initiative to empower the next generation of nurses as they answer the call to care.

Prospective nursing students with a prior bachelor’s degree in any field and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher may apply to Carey Health Science’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program with a 25-65% tuition reduction. This scholarship program is designed to enter more qualified, compassionate nurses into the healthcare field by making a career in nursing more attainable than ever. Change your life and the lives of others by answering the call to care at William Carey University.
