Scholarships for Nursing Students

Scholarships and grants are types of financial assistance that help approximately two-thirds of all students pay for college. At EveryNurse, we are dedicated to helping nursing students understand their financial aid options and navigate the process of funding their education.

Understand Your Financial Aid Options

In the United States, funding your college education is an expensive endeavor. Without some assistance, most people cannot afford the cost of going to college. According to reports by the National Center for Education Statistics, the average cost of tuition at a four-year public institution between the academic years of 2012 and 2013 equaled $17,474 for a single year. Acquiring an education at a four-year private institution means the fees are even higher, costing approximately $35,074 per year.

Remember: This amount comprises the cost for a single year, and most students need at least four years to complete an undergraduate degree, which means the number must be multiplied by four (or more) to arrive at the total cost of your college education.
