Here’s how it works:

  1. Applicants in the Upper Division or Accelerated BSN programs* at Goldfarb will be considered for the program based on qualifying factors including merit and/or financial need. 
  2. Award recipients enroll in courses each term, graduate from Goldfarb, pass the NCLEX and make a 3-year work commitment to BJC HealthCare. (Repayment is required if the commitment is not honored.)
