The Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing is overhauling its admission process for the 2015-2016 recruitment cycle. Beginning in Fall 2015, prospective students can expect to see a streamlined application, faster admission decisions, and more opportunities to earn merit scholarships.
“As a top-ranked nursing school, we are attracting applications from high-quality students from around the world,” said David Smith, associate dean for enrollment and student affairs at Emory’s School of Nursing. “Our students have many options for nursing school, so we’ve decided to simplify the entire admission process and increase the amount of scholarships available to them.”
The nursing school expects the newly refined process—coupled with significant scholarship packages—to help future students finalize their nursing schools plans earlier.
“Nursing continues to be one of the fasting growing occupations in the U.S.,” said Smith. “Streamlining the application process and reducing financial barriers will help us attract high-achieving students who can enter the nursing workforce faster to fill the growing demands of our health care delivery system.”
Emory’s School of Nursing has also modified its academic programs to give students fast-track options for interested students.
“We need nurses today more than ever before. We offer accelerated programs to help second-degree students earn a baccalaureate degree in as little as 15 months.”
Because the costs of a nursing education is on the rise across the nation, Emory will award more full-tuition scholarships this year to increase access for top students.
“We want to remove economic barriers for bright students. We awarded more than $7.1 million in financial aid and scholarships last academic year, and we’re planning to expand our merit scholarship programs to help more students.”
