Nursing Education Assistance Program

We support nursing education by providing financial assistance to individuals enrolled in a number of schools of nursing at the associate, baccalaureate and graduate levels of nursing.

Baylor Scott & White Health Nursing Education Assistance Program is open to anyone, including applicants not employed by Baylor Scott & White, who has either been accepted or applied to a school of nursing may apply.

Funds are distributed once the recipient begins to attend a school of nursing. Funding for school-related expenses begins in the fall and continues until the completion of the following spring semester or one of the following: the awarded amount is spent or the recipient drops, fails or graduates nursing school.

Eligible degree plans include:

  • ADN
  • BSN
  • MSN, all bridging programs
  • Doctoral programs
