WGU Welcomes Nurses for National Nurses Week 2013
National Nurses Week
is celebrated from May 6th through 12th
In honor of National Nurses Week, Western Governors University has established the Go Further in Nursing Scholarship. National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6 through May 12. To celebrate Nurses Week, WGU will award five scholarships, each valued up to $500, to motivated nurses who are ready to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree. The deadline to apply for this scholarship is April 28, 2013.
Visit the WGU Blog during National Nurses Week to enter to win a WGU Nursing hooded sweatshirt. Just tell us in 25 words or less why a degree that focuses on competency is important for a career in nursing, and we’ll select random winners to receive a free hoodie!
WGU Nursing merchandise is also available for purchase at the WGU Store.
