Hurst Review Offers New Scholarship to Prelicensure Students through AACN's Foundation

Published September 28, 2020

WASHINGTON, DC, September 28, 2020 – Hurst Review, a leading NCLEX®-RN review course provider, is partnering with the AACN to launch a new scholarship program for students in pre-licensure entry-level baccalaureate, master's, and doctoral nursing programs. Administered by AACN’s Foundation for Academic Nursing, scholarships in the amount of $2,500 each will be awarded to a deserving nursing student prior to the Spring, Fall, and Summer semesters.

We have enormous respect for AACN and the faculty and students they represent,” said Marlene Hurst, founder of Hurst Review and graduate of the Master of Science in Nursing program at Mississippi University for Women. “Hurst Review is thrilled to support the academic nursing community by funding scholarships and hosting NCLEX® review courses for students at AACN member schools.

To apply for a Hurst Review-AACN Nursing Scholarship, students will need to complete an online application form, which requires a brief 250-word essay on their goals and career aspirations in nursing. Scholarship winners will be announced within 30 days of each submission deadline (August 1, January 1, and May 1). This scholarship is non-recurring and will be awarded to individual students for one semester only.

AACN is pleased to partner with Hurst Review to offer this new scholarship opportunity to qualified students attending member schools of nursing,” said Dr. Deborah Trautman, AACN President and Chief Executive Officer. “Given the nation’s growing need for highly educated nurses, we hope this new partnership will serve as a model for other businesses and agencies looking to support the next generation of professional registered nurses.
