With the demand for nurses on the rise, CHI St. Vincent has partnered with schools across the state to offer Nursing Pathway Program Scholarship opportunities.

Now, students can earn their AEN, RN, and BSN degrees at UA Little Rock, Henderson State University and National Park College with the help of CHI St. Vincent. Scholarships will be awarded to qualifying students and after graduation employment will be guaranteed for 24-months at a CHI St. Vincent facility.
