The Presidential Scholars Program was established in February 2010 to recognize and support outstanding students in the College’s LPN to RN associate degree program. Honorees are chosen bi-annually, in February and August. The selection process is based on pre-entrance test scores, grades received in the pre-admission math/chemistry course, and faculty reviews. All candidates must have a minimum 3.73 cumulative GPA at the end of the first nursing quarter to qualify and must maintain a 3.5 GPA overall until graduation in order to continue in the program.
All Presidential Scholars receive a free laptop computer and a stipend to cover the cost of their textbooks. They are also eligible to fast track into Helene Fuld College of Nursing’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BS) Program. Additional benefits of membership include priority registration each term and recognition at commencement.
