West Virginia Wesleyan College is thrilled to announce The Nursing Advantage Program for freshman students enrolling in pre-nursing in Fall of 2022! Recently, West Virginia Wesleyan College was awarded $1,000,000 through West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s Nursing Workforce Expansion Program, which is designed to address the state’s nursing shortage through a multifaceted approach to attract, train, and retain nurses in the Mountain State. You can read more about the grant by clicking here.

Students enrolling in The Nursing Advantage Program will have access to new, state-of-the-art equipment and training and to Wesleyan’s unparalleled instruction and student support. In addition, each student in the program will receive a Dell Laptop Computer, $1,000 for the first year to fund books and supplies, and a $2,000 first-year scholarship stipend.   Up to 60 students will be selected so we recommend applying as soon as you can.
