Albert Einstein once said that, “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” And we at RNCareers.org, we understand that education comes with a cost. To help with the rising cost of education, we are now offering the RNCareers.org Education Scholarship to students across the nation.
But as education becomes more and more important to a person’s success, so has the cost of achieving that education. In fact, 71 percent of recent college graduates have an average of $29,400 in student loans taken out. This number increases by 6 percent every year, making it a serious roadblock to success.
The RNCareers.org Education Scholarship will be awarded to assist students defray the fees associated with their education.
