WVU School of Nursing creates new scholarships for nursing students

MORGANTOWN — As the vice president of health promotion and wellness and dean of the WVU School of Nursing, Tara Hulsey, Ph.D., understands the need for qualified nurses in West Virginia. She is taking her passion for nursing and education one step further by providing $25,000 for WVU nursing scholarships.
The Dr. Tara M. Hulsey BSN Fast-Track Student Scholarship will provide financial support to students who have obtained a bachelor of science or bachelor of arts degree and wish to become a registered nurse with a bachelor of science degree in nursing. This is the first scholarship of its kind at the WVU School of Nursing.
“It is important that we build the nursing workforce in West Virginia,” Hulsey said. “The state has many health challenges, and we can make the most difference and biggest impact through nursing. Our accelerated program allows students to achieve a nursing degree in 18 months, placing them into the workforce sooner.”
“West Virginia feels like home to me,” Hulsey said. “Any way I can help the University and state improve health outcomes, as well as encourage students to stay and work in our beautiful state, is a privilege and way to say thank you.”
The BS/BA to BSN program is a fast-tracked program for college graduates who wish to become a registered nurse with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. It is designed for full time study with five consecutive semesters. Successful students will obtain the bachelor of science in nursing degree and are eligible to take the licensing examination for registered professional nurses.
