Goldfarb Launches New Scholarship Program to Encourage Aspiring Nurses

Posted on 10 May 2017 by Goldfarb Team

For those with nursing aspirations, that first day at Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes Jewish College marks a significant milestone in their lives. To ensure more aspiring nurses have the opportunity to achieve their career goals, the college recently revamped its scholarship program and is offering nine new scholarship opportunities for new students.

"Many students realize in high school or during their first years of college that they want to become a nurse,” said Jason Crowe, director of enrollment management at Goldfarb. “We are actively recruiting these students already, and because we want Goldfarb to be at the top of their list of nursing programs, we are excited to be able to offer scholarship options to help cover their tuition and educational costs."

Goldfarb is committed to providing educational opportunities for those who want to enter this exciting field, as well as for practicing nurses seeking to advance their careers by obtaining advanced degrees.
