Nursing Scholars Program

Piedmont Nursing Scholars Program

Start your nursing career at Piedmont and receive assistance to pay for your education!

The Piedmont Nursing Scholars Program rewards qualified nursing students with funds to defray the cost of attending nursing school and the opportunity to work as Piedmont nurses after they graduate. This empowers students to have a pathway to join a leading healthcare provider in the Southeast and an opportunity to join us in making a positive difference in every life we touch across Georgia and beyond.

Highlights of the Program

  • The first scholarships were awarded before the Fall 2023 semester, and new scholarships will continue to be awarded twice a year ahead of the Fall and Spring semesters.
  • Nursing scholars selected for the program will receive $2,500 per semester, up to $10,000, until graduation from nursing school.
  • Nursing students selected for the program will agree to a six-month service commitment to Piedmont for every semester of scholarship awards. Nurses may fulfill this service commitment at any Piedmont hospital in our system.
  • The service commitment does not start until nursing scholars have graduated from nursing school, passed the NCLEX exam and started full-time employment as nurses.
