The purpose of this program is to provide financial assistance to individuals pursuing a program of study leading to a Bachelors or Masters in Nursing degree. This program will help alleviate the health care workforce shortages in VA by obligating scholarship recipients to complete a minimum 2-year service obligation at a VA health care facility after graduation and licensure/certification.
The Scholarship awards provide for the payment of a monthly stipend, tuition, required fees, and other reasonable educational expenses, including books and necessary equipment. The benefits are exempt from Federal taxation.
Awards of scholarships under the HPSP are subject to the availability of funds, and VA may award a full-time student a scholarship for a maximum of 4 years.
VA may also award a part-time student a scholarship for a maximum of 6 years.
After completion of their education, participants must serve as a full-time clinical VA employee for a minimum of two years in nursing services with direct patient care of the participant's discipline in an assignment or location determined by VA while participating in the HPSP.
