MOBILE, Ala. — The University of Mobile has announced two new scholarships for the fall semester aimed toward students seeking a career in nursing.
The Infirmary Health Scholarship for Associate Degree in Nursing students and the Springhill Medical Center Scholarship for Bachelor of Science in Nursing students were designed to help ease the shortage of nursing professionals in the Mobile area.
"We know there are many students in our area who want the integration of faith and learning that the University of Mobile offers. These are students who would thrive in our unique Christ-centered environment where they are known by their professors," said University of Mobile President Lonnie Burnett.
UM partnered with Infirmary Health to offer the Infirmary Health Scholarship for Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) students in the School of Nursing. The ADN program is a fast-track to a career in nursing that can be completed in five semesters.
Infirmary Health scholarship recipients agree to work for Infirmary Health for a minimum of two years after graduation. The UM ADN program will begin in August 2022 pending final approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges and the Alabama Board of Nursing.

There are a limited number of Infirmary Health scholarships available. To apply to UM or for more information, visit umobile.edu/ and or contact an admissions counselor at 251-442-2222.
Through a partnership with Springhill Medical Center, the Scholarship for Bachelor of Science in Nursing will be offered to eligible students in their junior or senior year who have been admitted to the university's Bachelor of Science in Nursing program in the School of Nursing.
SMC Scholarship recipients agree to work for Springhill Medical Center for a minimum of three years after graduation. A limited number of scholarships are available. Students accepted to the UM School of Nursing may apply at umobile.edu/smc.
UM currently awards over $15 million each year in merit and talent-based scholarships. Over 98% of students at UM receive financial aid.
The University of Mobile is a Christ-centered university with a vision of "Higher Education for a Higher Purpose," founded to honor God by equipping students for their future professions in an environment where they are known.
