The Nursing Working Group of the National Bleeding Disorders Foundation is proud to provide a nursing scholarship program aimed at recruitment and retention for nurses working with the bleeding disorders community.

Funded through the generous grant support of Genentech, this fund is committed to increasing the knowledge base and enhancing the professional development of nurses. It is intended for nurses who endeavor to advance their education and dedicate their careers to providing comprehensive clinical care to individuals living with bleeding and clotting disorders.

One scholarship award is available for up to 2 years as long as other requirements are met.  The award for one NP-MSN/DNP will be up to $5,000 per semester or $10,000 per year.   

The nurse who receives this scholarship award will need to commit to remain employed at an HTC for 1.5 years post-graduation for each year of scholarship.  The scholarship recipient also must maintain a 3.0 GPA and meet additional reporting requirements to ensure continuation of funding.

The program is designed to secure advanced practice nursing staff within the hemophilia treatment center (HTC) system in support of the integrated care model. The aim is to develop graduates who will become expert clinicians within the HTC system, role models and leaders who are able to help shape health policy and provide training and support to others in hemostasis and thrombosis care.  The Nursing Scholarship is offered for registered nurses with their BSN to pursue a nurse practitioner degree (MSN or DNP).

New nursing scholarships are not currently offered. We are working to securing funding, and we hope to offer these again in the future.
