Springhill Medical Center joins the University of Mobile in offering a new scholarship program for junior and senior year nursing students working toward their Bachelor of Science degree in the school's nursing program.
Students may receive the Springhill Medical Center Scholarship in addition to merit scholarships awarded by the University of Mobile and other financial aid.
BSN students who are awarded the SMC Scholarship will agree to work for Springhill Medical Center for a minimum of three years after graduation.
University of Mobile President Lonnie Burnett said the collaboration with Springhill Medical Center and other local health care facilities is designed to help ease the shortage of nursing professionals in the Mobile area.
“Many of our School of Nursing graduates currently serve our community as health care professionals at Springhill Medical Center, and many more nurses soon will join them, thanks to this new scholarship,” Burnett said.
Students accepted to the UM School of Nursing may apply for the Springhill Medical Center Scholarship at umobile.edu/smc or call University of Mobile Enrollment Services at 251.442.2222.
