LINCOLN, Neb. — The University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) College of Nursing is offering a new scholarship program, the Nebraska Neighbors: UNMC Nursing Rural Advantage Scholarship, to nursing students entering the UNMC baccalaureate of science traditional or accelerated program from select neighboring states who plan to attend the college’s Scottsbluff, Kearney or Norfolk campuses.

“These scholarships are designed to make it easier for students from neighboring states to study on one of our rural campuses,” said Juliann Sebastian, PhD, dean of the UNMC College of Nursing. “We want qualified applicants from these states to know we would love to showcase the incredible nursing education that is available from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing. We are so fortunate to have three rural campuses that connect students with fabulous clinical facilities and help them feel a part of the wonderful rural communities in Nebraska.”
