University of Evansville Welcomes Nursing Transfer Students with $20,000 Scholarships

Posted: Monday, July 22, 2019

Nursing students who transfer to the University of Evansville's direct entry nursing program are eligible to receive a $20,000 per year scholarship.

Requirements and deadlines vary based on each individual's situation, and faculty advisors are available to meet one-on-one to create a custom transfer plan. Admitted students are placed at either the first or second year of the nursing program based on the number and types of courses completed and accepted for transfer credit.

"UE faculty have gone way beyond what I ever expected to make my transfer to UE smooth and successful," said Emma Vassey, a recent UE nursing transfer. "After learning I had not been accepted to a different nursing school, UE opened up that roadblock and helped me get enrolled right away."

Students in the Dunigan Family School of Nursing work closely with expert faculty in and out of the classroom. Through clinical simulations, six semesters of clinical experience at local facilities, study abroad, and personalized learning with small class sizes, UE students graduate with the experience they need to succeed in the nursing profession.

"Our faculty work very hard to ensure that all of our students receive a high-quality personalized educational experience," said Jerrilee LaMar, chair of the Dunigan Family School of Nursing. "We work individually with our transfer students for a seamless transition that enables them to achieve their dream of completing their nursing degree."

Scholarships are available for individuals transferring to UE from other institutions for fall of 2019. Students interested in transferring to UE can contact LaMar at for more information.
