Nebraska Neighbor

The UNMC College of Nursing is offering a new scholarship program, the Nebraska Neighbors: UNMC Nursing Rural Advantage Scholarship. This is available to nursing students entering the UNMC BSN Traditional or Accelerated programs from Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota, or Wyoming who plan to attend our Kearney, Norfolk, or Scottsbluff campuses.  

The scholarship will reduce the net cost of out-of-state tuition to resident tuition rates. Students do not need to apply for this scholarship as it is automatically applied upon acceptance into the program.
