Grants for Pre-Licensure Healthcare Professionals

For healthcare professionals such as physicians, nurses, destists, etc, completing the journey to patient care involves more than just matriculation into and graduation from college. It also includes standardized examinations which are required to become licensed and to practice. Additionally, several of the healthcare professions utilize a common application system or service through which graduates apply for placement in initial, post-graduation-level training that is required before they can receive professional licensure and can work as an independently-responsible healthcare professional. All of this costs money — anywhere from $200 to as much as $10,000… a potential barrier to a student who has already invested considerably in their formal education and may have already taken on considerable educational debt. This is true both for US students and for tens-of-thousand's of internationally trained healthcare professions who want to be a part of US healthcare. With the looming crisis of not enough healthcare professions to meet the needs of US patients, it is critical that we support these pre-licensure healthcare professionals through the licensure process so that they can take their place in service to US patients. To support the ability of these individuals to complete their pathway to healthcare practice, the DRN Foundation provides grants and scholarships to individuals who have already demonstrated their ability to be successful on their pathway to underwrite these expenses — required expenses which are generally not provided for by other financial aid programs and which may serve as barriers to their success.
