Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming’s nursing scholarship was recently featured in a national report.

The Wyoming Scholars Program was created by BCBSWY and the University of Wyoming Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing to help students in Wyoming pursue nursing degrees, according to a BCBSWY news release.

The program was recently featured in The Health of America Community Investment Report, which is released annually by the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association. The report highlighted companies and their foundations that are making a difference in healthcare across the country.

“Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming is dedicated to strengthening the Wyoming health care system, including helping communities address challenges like nursing shortages,” says Rick Schum, President and CEO, in a statement.  “Through our foundation, we are supporting a program that not only helps Wyoming students pursue secondary education but also grows the number of nurses in the state.”

The scholarships are provided annually through Wyoming’s seven community colleges to students who need financial assistance to pursue a bachelor’s degree in nursing at UW. Scholarships are also awarded to students enrolled in the University of Wyoming Doctor of Nursing Practice program to allow them to practice in a clinic setting in-state after graduation.

Last year, the Wyoming Scholars Program awarded eight scholarships to students attending Casper College, Northwest College, Northern Wyoming Community College District, Central Wyoming College, UW, Laramie County Community College and Western Wyoming Community College.
