Any nurse who wishes to pursue more education should have that opportunity, and through scholarships provided by Baptist Health and Baptist Health Foundation, many do. From a yearlong practical nursing certificate to master’s degree, scholarships are offered to a wide range of deserving current and future nurses.
Baptist Health College Little Rock produces some of the finest registered nurse and practical nurse candidates in the state, largely in part to the more than 100 Foundation Scholarships offered to the school each year.

"This sponsorship is truly life changing for me. This semester, I struggled to pay tuition and was discouraged as to whether or not this path was obtainable for me. Now, I feel confident in knowing that nursing was what I was meant to do. Not only did this sponsorship immensely help financially, but it also proved to me the impact that an individual can have on others to change the world for the better."

"I graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a Master of Business Administration in May 2015. In the three years that I attended classes, I received the tuition assistance grant offered by Baptist Health. I worked full time, attended night classes, married my best friend, participated in a medical mission trip to West Africa and took the position of Unit Supervisor CCU. Achieving these goals without the aid of the tuition reimbursement would have been close to impossible."
