Her essay, “An Insight of Nursing,” was chosen as the best from all entries submitted by nursing students for the School of Nursing Uniform Scholarship Award.

The award was announced Nov. 16.

In addition to a traditional four-year baccalaureate nursing program, the MTSU School of Nursing offers the “R.N. to B.S.N program,” which allows currently licensed registered nurses with a diploma or associate’s degree in nursing to obtain a Bachelor of Science in their specialty.

A master’s degree in nursing is available through a consortium program with three tracks: nursing education, nursing administration and family practice nursing.
