Minority Nurse Scholarships Listing is the only online resource for today's diversified nursing community.

They provide resources and information pertaining to education, career development and minority health for the growing population of minority nurses in America.

African-American, Hispanic, Asian, Native American and Filipinos comprise roughly 10% of the overall nursing population. In the nineties, the number increased at a faster rate (19.1%) than the number of all registered nurses (14.2%).* Also, thanks to an aging population and an increase in healthcare technology, there will be an estimated 3.1 million new healthcare jobs by 2006, allowing even more room for growth.

In response to this advancing audience was created as an extension of Minority Nurse magazine. The Web site features several unique resources that focus on career advancement and higher education. Nursing Employers provides contact information for every hospital in the country. Academic Programs allows users to search for undergraduate, graduate, or continuing education programs. If you're looking for a career change, try the Faculty Employment foir all things academia, or Job Postings, for all general nursing opportunities.For a change oif pace in the summer, visit our Camp Nurse section.

They have a Financial Aid section that provides information on obtaining funding for school and allows users to explore a collection of minority-only nursing scholarships.
