This program provides a full tuition scholarship at the University of Miami School of Nursing, plus a stipend for books. The scholars selected to receive the scholarship commit to remain continuously employed in a Registered Nurse position at the initial placement site within the University Of Miami Health System/Miller School Of Medicine for a consecutive thirty-six (36) month period following their graduation/state licensure.
