Associate Degree in Nursing Students to Receive Scholarships
Four Mount Associate Degree in Nursing students will receive $12,500 scholarships from the UniHealth Foundation and Good Samaritan Hospital of Los Angeles thanks to a $50,000 joint gift.
This is the third year Good Samaritan and UniHealth Foundation have teamed up to offer scholarships for students in the program, who are mostly working adults striving for three years to earn the degree.
In exchange for the money, two students will work at Good Samaritan for two years after graduation, and two more students may choose to work at Good Samaritan or anywhere in the greater-Los Angeles UniHealth service area, said Becky Otten, director of the Associate Degree in Nursing program. The program enrolls about 250 students who attend classes at night and do clinical rotations on the weekends.
“Our program is geared for the working adult," and the students know they have chosen an expensive school but they know they are in a quality program,” Otten said.
The College received the money in January.
