College of Graduate Nursing

Thank you for supporting the College of Graduate Nursing. Your gift will go directly to the fund chosen. 

College of Graduate Nursing Underrepresented Student Scholarship Fund

WesternU values having a diverse student body both to increase the diversity of the future health care workforce, as well as to prepare all our students to provide the best care for their future diverse patients. Scholarships assist the University in attracting and supporting students from groups who are currently or historically underrepresented in the WesternU student body and/or the professional workforce. While federal law prohibits the University from awarding scholarships to students from a particular racial group or gender, we can award scholarships whose aim is to generally increase the diversity of the student body. And what is considered to be underrepresented can vary from decade to decade and program to program along dimensions such as race, gender, disability, and more.

College of Graduate Nursing Clinical Skills Support Funds

College of Graduate Nursing "Welcoming Incoming Nursing Students" Fund (CGN WINS)

The WINS fund supports our new graduate nursing students and helps them develop the professional identify of a nurse. Remember back to the moment you received your white coat from CGN and the power that the coat represents. Today, a nurse’s professional identity includes the white coat, scrubs, equipment, and more. The WINS fund covers the costs of some of these initial equipment and supply needs. Help us support all of our CGN nursing professional programs: MSN, FNP, ENP, PMHNP, and DNP.

The College of Graduate Nursing provide our nurses with the most realistic, live-patient care settings possible, and the use of skilled Standardized Patients is vital to this training. Your support of the CGN Standardized Patient Program Fund helps ensure that the College of Graduate Nursing is able to maintain a deep and varied pool of available standardized patients for use in our rigorous clinical training instruction.

College of Graduate Nursing Recruitment Fund

In the admissions process, the battle to attract the best and brightest new students can be fierce. While our caring faculty, interprofessional education opportunities and commitment to Humanism are highly valued characteristics, a student’s decision often is most affected by cost. Recruitment scholarships can therefore be a deciding factor for the most sought-after students, who can, in the long term, help CGN attract and retain the best faculty, improve board passing rates, and increase our rankings and reputation.
