Scholarships available for RNs in University’s online MSN Program; Apply by February 1

As the COVID-19 crisis underscores the critical need for nurses, Montclair State is offering scholarships to help registered nurses meet the moment by enrolling in the University’s online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). The program prepares highly skilled nurses to advance their careers in one of three specialties: Nursing Administration, Nursing Education and Clinical Research.

Montclair State’s nursing students and faculty have been on the front lines of the pandemic response and the two new scholarships being awarded recognize the financial challenges of registered nurses pursuing higher degrees.

The School of Nursing is providing financial assistance to new online MSN students to cover their first course of study during the spring 2021 semester beginning on February 8.

The Edward W. and Stella C. Van Houten Memorial Fund is providing scholarships for RNs interested in pursuing the nurse educator speciality of the online MSN program. The tuition assistance will be provided to new students beginning in fall 2021.

“This has been a challenging year,” says School of Nursing Dean Janice Smolowitz. “We have spoken with nurses considering enrolling in the MSN degree program and they voiced financial concerns given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, the School of Nursing is providing this scholarship opportunity.”

Applications are being accepted now. Act fast, the deadline is Monday, Feb. 1, 2021. Learn more here.
