HomeCare.com’s mission is to “Empower nurses to make a living doing what they love, when and where they want”. HomeCare.com has partnered with Nurses Against Racism (NursesAgainstRacism.com) to promote the scholarship.

Nurses dedicate their lives to public service and providing for local communities through their practice, but unfortunately, many prospective nurses don’t have the opportunity to graduate with a degree debt-free, particularly nurses of color.

Today, 51% of Black students use student loans to fund their education, and 32% of them borrow $40,000-$59,999 cumulatively. Black nurses currently represent 10% of the nurses in the US and with this scholarship we hope to encourage more to apply. The US is expecting a nursing shortage to continue while aging Baby Boomers retire in record numbers during the next 10 years.

The HomeCare.com Nursing Scholarship is designed to provide equitable opportunities for prospective Black nurses to excel in their studies. All prospective nursing majors, CNAs, LPNs, or RNs are eligible to apply for this scholarship.

To apply, please submit a 400-600 word essay sharing who or what inspires you in your nursing career, and how you will apply your motivation to serve the public through your practice.

Selection Criteria:
Essay, Ambition, Impact, Selfless
