Each WGU Loves Nurses Scholarship is valued at up to $2,000—$500 per six-month term for up to four terms. New students can apply for these scholarships through June 30. To be eligible, scholarship applicants must be officially admitted to WGU Texas, complete the scholarship application, and be interviewed by a scholarship counselor. Recipients are based on academic records, financial need, readiness for online study, and current competency, among other considerations.

The National League for Nursing has named WGU Texas’ College of Health Professions as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education for creating environments that enhance student learning and professional development. Designed to meet the needs of working nurses, WGU Texas’ BSN, MSN, and MBA programs provide the knowledge, skills, and credentials employers seek.

WGU pioneered competency-based education, which measures learning rather than time spent in class. This allows health professionals to earn career-enhancing degrees while meeting work and family obligations. Students complete their programs by studying on schedules that fit their lives, advancing as soon as they demonstrated that they have mastered course materials. Many students are able to apply prior learning and work experience to help them accelerate their time to degree, saving both time and money.
