Nursing Scholarship - Pathophysiology (Oct 2013)

About the Scholarship

The Nursing Scholarship was developed to help students prepare for exams and earn some of their tuition back in the process. The topic for this scholarship is Pathophysiology. The multiple choice quizzes were written to align with commonly used college level text books. Quiz questions are based on straight forward core concepts that students learn in introductory nursing classes.

If the highest scoring student is from a tuition back participating school they will receive their tuition back for that course (up to $1,000).
