We hear a lot of complaints in our newsroom, so I ve decided to try and put out some GOOD News stories via this blog.

Here s the first one:

New scholarships for nursing students!

More than 40 Boise State University Health Sciences students are going to get scholarships for the next school year and it s all due to an innovative loan from Saint Alphonsus Health System.

According to the hospital s release: The $2 million loan, invested through the Boise State University Foundation s endowment in 2011, has earned more than $131,000.
That money will be used to create 10 scholarships for graduate students and 31 undergraduate scholarships for students pursuing nursing and other health-related degrees.

The scholarships will primarily be awarded based on financial need.

So, if you re a BSU nursing student I suggest you get going on trying to qualify for one of these new scholarships. If you know a nursing student...pass this on!
