  3. Complete the general application questions upon entering the site.

      • When asked if your degree has a concentration, list your program and specialty (if applicable). For example, "Four-year B.S.N." or "M.S.N.-FNP."

    Any scholarships that do not have the “Apply” button will add your name after comparing the listed qualifications against the answers on the general application and your student information.
