Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Scholarship
The Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (NP) Scholarship awards funding to nurse practitioners working in safety-net clinics who are pursuing a post-master's certificate as a psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner.
Applicants must agree to work full-time in a safety-net setting in Virginia for at least 2 years upon completion of the certificate.
- Have a master's degree in nursing
- Be a Virginia licensed FNP, ANP, WHNP or PNP
- Be accepted into a Psychiatric-Mental Health Post-Masters Certificate (PMC) program, accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission or the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
- Not be enrolled or planning to enroll in a doctoral nursing program, as the service commitment must begin immediately after PMC program completion
- Not have any existing service obligation, such as National Health Service Corps or other state or federal loan/scholarship programs
Preference will be given to NPs attending a Virginia School of Nursing and/or with experience working in the health safety-net as an employee or volunteer.
Up to $26,000 for tuition and required fees.
