School Nurse Program
The purpose of the School Nurse Credential Scholarship Program is to provide scholarships to nursing students in exchange for a minimum two-year .5 FTE service commitment at an eligible school district within Sequoia Healthcare District boundaries. A participant will agree to sign a contract with a local school district upon award of a school nurse credential and serve the full length of the contract. All participants will be expected to fulfill their service obligation. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of scholarship funds and repayment of any disbursed funds to Sequoia Healthcare District.
The Application Process
Participants will have the opportunity to increase access to care by delivering critical nursing services to local school districts.
The program will provide a reimbursement of up $5,000 toward costs already incurred toward school nurse credential while working at eligible school district.
