Bristol-Myers Squibb Awards $30,000 Grant to Provide Scholarships That Will Enhance Learning Opportunities for BSN Students

Thomas Edison State University just released the following Press Release:

TRENTON, N.J. – Thomas Edison State University has received a $30,000 grant from Bristol-Myers Squibb in support of the institution’s Accelerated 2nd Degree BSN Program (Accelerated BSN).

This grant provides financial support to help cover tuition costs for up to 15 nursing students enrolled in the 2017-2018 Accelerated BSN cohort. Students in this program already possess another baccalaureate degree and thus face unique financial struggles. Their eligibility for Pell grants and other financial aid is limited, as 95 percent of them already carry loans from their previous baccalaureate degree programs. Additionally, students in the Accelerated BSN are strongly discouraged from working while enrolled due to the program’s rigorous nature.

After years of playing the role of child caregiver, writing her memoir launched Michelle on a journey of self-discovery that would prove surprisingly healing. Coming to terms, she realized, was no longer enough. She had to break into her own life, a quest that literally played out as she was writing the final pages.
